The North American continent is a vast land of great contrasts once inhabited by native peoples and tribes as diverse as the landscapes. Each of the ancient nations had traditions and mythologies which reflected their way of life and provided meaning, balance and a sense of place. Their mythologies were concerned with the power of the spirit world and attempted to explain the vastness of the cosmos and the wonders of nature as well as the mysteries of the human mind. There are tales of tricksters, animal spirits, dark demons and transformation: the tradition of story-telling kept these mythologies alive for thousands of years, up to the present day.
