Download and read online Supernatural Tales Of The Native American Indians in PDF and EPUB Native American Mythology began long before the European settlers arrived on North American soil. Contrary to popular beliefs, there is more to Native American Folklore than stories of buffalo hunts, teepee living and animal stories. Hundreds of tribes throughout North American created a huge mythological system that has rivaled that of the Greeks. Since the beginning of time every civilization has presented its own collection of strange tales and folklore. The Native American Indians are no different. Many of their stories included giants, hideous creatures, ghosts, beings from the spirit world, witches and many others. These creatures have haunted various corners of North America for thousands of years. The stories have been handed down from generation to generation. Some stories are amusing, while others are meant to be a terrifying lesson in life and contain eerie details and gruesome facts that will make your skin crawl. The stories collected in this book represent some of the best to be found. Many are about ghosts and their interaction with the living, some evil in nature while others appear quite normal. They teach a lesson that the dead don’t automatically become ghosts. Many of the stories give a brief hint to an afterlife. While some ghosts go about their everyday lives in spirit form, and others attempt to come back from the other side. Some come back for revenge on the living.

Animal tales abound, especially those on the southeastern trickster Rabbit.
