Reply To: Myths Everyone Should Know?

#73505

Thank you so much, Juan, for your contribution. Pachamama, the Selk’nam, and Bochica were completely off my radar (I am excited, because now I have “new” myths to seek out and explore; as much as I love classical myths, they offer such a tired and limited perspective if that’s all one knows).

I’ll add to my list above the relatively well documented, rich mythology of the indigenous Haida peoples in North America’s Pacific Northwest (straddling the boundaries of the United States and Canada). One of the best collections of this material is embedded in poet Robert Bringhurst’s A Story as Sharp as a Knife: The Classical Haida Mythtellers and Their World (which includes tales of the trickster Raven).
