World Legends and Lore
ALL Written and researched by Margaret Odrowaz-Sypniewski

THE ICONS ABOVE -

The images above represent some of the most popular icons of mythology and legends. I have loved myths and legends since childhood. My paternal grandmothers all told me stories whenever our families united for my great-grandmother Harriet's birthday, she was the elder of the family and lived to age 95. She claimed herself as a descent of Pocahontas, daughter of Powhatan, weromancer of all the Virginian early tribes.

My other grandmother, Grace Lenor, told stories of her mother, Ermina (my great-grandmother), who was a healer in the Mohawk Bear Clan of the Iroquois Confederacy.

My maternal grandmother was 100% Scottish and the first of her line to emigrate to America in the 1900's. She knew many Celtic stories. All these cultures have a great similarity. :
