American History is filled with folklore, Native American mythology, and real truths that make for wonderful campfire tales. In these stories, much like earlier European, Greek, and Roman tales, the accounts can often be only be guessed at, as to whether they are fact or fiction, but they continue to make the rounds of new generations. The term ‘Native American’ covers many hundreds of tribes and peoples. We have given some of the more prominent and/or fabulous cultures their own sections. For example Cherokee Mythology, Hopi Mythology, Inuit Mythology, Iroquois Mythology and Navajo Mythology. We hope to add more if the Gods are willing and the Spirits provide sustenance. Native American culture struggled to survive after the white man invaded their lives. Living through forced moves, war, starvation, diseases, and assimilation, these strong and spiritual people managed to keep their many legends and stories alive.
