On the following pages, I've included some of the magnificent lore of this country's Native people. Many are teaching stories and many are the very basis of their spiritual lives. They are not myths anymore than the stories of the Bible, or Gita or any other spiritual stories are. They are the very fabric from which their lives are woven.

 

Because many of the stories are handed down from generation to generation verbally, you will probably find many different versions of some of them. These make up the many layers of richness and beauty in Native American spirituality. I encourage you to explore them further for the wisdom they will enrich your life with.

 

I will be adding stories as I find the time, so these pages will continue to evolve and grow. I hope you will return often.
