AMERICAN INDIAN MYTHS & MYSTERIES Book
This is an authoritative and scrupulously researched account of mythology of the Native American, an all-encompassing collection of American Indian legends, truths, and myths. Although much of this ancient heritage has been lost, a great deal has been saved, and there are men and women alive today who remember the lore of their ancestors. This book divides its chapters into two groupings: the Historical Mysteries and the Mystical Mysteries.
Section one deals with the origins of the American Indian, artifacts, megaliths, totems, and lost colonies. Section two deals with ritual ceremonies such as the shaking tent, medicine man magic, secrets of the shamans, and other interesting topics. This volume sheds new light on the motivations of Native Americans when faced with a deluge of European settlers.
