Myths of the Iroquois - Illustrated Edition


The principal monuments of the once powerful Iroquois are their myths and folklore, with the language in which they are embodied. As these monuments are fast crumbling away, through their contact with European civilization, the ethnologist must hasten his search among them in order to trace the history of their laws of mind and the records of their customs, ideas, laws, and beliefs. Most of these have been long forgotten by the people, who continue to repeat traditions as they have been handed down through their fathers and fathers' fathers, from generation to generation, for many centuries. Contents: Gods and Other Supernatural Beings Pigmies Practice of Sorcery Mythological Explanation of Phenomena Tales Religion
