Description
 
The legends, myth-cycles, tales, rituals, songs, & poems of Native Americans (both North & South) have been treated as ethnological data or as curious objects. But, the author believes that the songs & poems in this volume will, in time, be accepted as representatives of one of the world’s great literatures. These songs & poems are taken from an American Indian expression extending in time & scope from the codices of the ancient Mayas & Nahuas to songs of the modern Iglulik Eskimo. It’s high time these myths, songs, poems, & tales be recognized as literature. The world of magic forever lies around us in the daily commonplace -- in the familiar but unseen faces & places, & the winds & rains, & changing moods of earth & sky.
