G.W. Mullins Pens Book on Native American LegendsG.W. Mullins Pens Book on Native American Legends
by BWW News Desk - Jul 24, 2015

Native American Indian culture is known for its rich oral traditions. In many cases there were no written languages to document their histories. The tribes relied on verbal communication to share their customs, history, rituals and legends. The tribal elders used vibrant tales to pass information to the younger generations. These stories were not only related to tribal history but were meant to entertain as well as educate, while preserving their tribal culture. Each time an elder told a story, new life was breathed into it. The telling of the stories gave a revived meaning to the tribe's past and their relations to the earth and the animals they had depended on for existence. In many cases when the stories were told, they were accompanied by music. Drums and rhythm were paired with dance to create a visual record. The Hopi Indians culture was and is rich with these stories. There was a time in Hopi history that when crops were harvested, religious ceremonies had been performed, and the winter wood had been collected. It was at this time that the people broke out into dance and story-telling. It was a time of sharing a rich history. With this book, that time is now. The stories collected in this book represent some of the best to be found. Included you will find: Hopi Prayer For Peace, Creation, The Wanderings of the Bear Clan, The Snake Myth, A Journey to the Skeleton House, Korosta Katzina Song, Huruing Wuhti And The Sun, The Wanderings Of The Hopi, The Revenge Of The Katcinas, How The Circle (Pongo) Katcina And His Wife Became Stars, The Kokoshori Katcina And The Shongopavi Maiden, The Two War Gods And The Two Maidens, How The Po'okongs Destroyed Cookoko And His Wife, How Po'okong Killed The Bear, The Po'okongs Attend A Dance, The Po'okongs And The Balolookong, Masauwuu Marries A Maiden, and many, many more. For further information, on the writing visit G.W. Mullins' web site at http://gwmullins.wix.com/officialsite. For information on the art of C.L. Hause visit his web site at http://clarencehause.wix.com/homepage. Books from the Walking With Spirits series are available on Amazon.com, Kobo, Google Book Store, and Barnes and Noble. G.W. Mullins is a Native American of Cherokee decent. He has been a published author for several years. He recently released book one in his From The Dead Of Night Series, the top selling title Daniel Is Waiting, which is available on Amazon.com, Kobo, Google Book Store, and Barnes and Noble. C.L.
