Cherokee & Yokut from the Beginning Native American tribes all have their own unique views of just how the world and civilization came to be. While some share similarities in their stories, others have a very different story to tell of how this world came to be. The Cherokee and Yokyut tribes are no different in that they have great resemblance, yet the tales are told through different contexts. The Cherokee tell of a world full of cold, vast and endless darkness (the great stone arch of the sky) where tiny creatures live within an area of the sky. Here the water beetle leapt off and discovered the water below, but the only ground was below the water.
It is a warm summer night and shades of orange, red, and gold appear in the sky over the pine-covered hills. The sun soon disappears beneath the dark hills and darkness settles over the land. The buffalo, antelope, and elk find places to rest for the night and all is quiet except for the creeks and birds. In several hours, the sky will again be lit with a multitude of colors and the animals will begin to rise. A new day will begin in the Black Hills, just like it did hundreds of years ago.

Both the Iroquois and African Bushman creation myths have some differences, but they also have strong similarities. Before the land was created on earth in the two-creation myth both the animals and human’s relationship was very strong and peaceful and caring, the start of the bushman creation myth states that “In this place people and animals lived together peacefully. They understood each other”, and at the start of the Iroquois creation myth before the land was created the caring relationship of the humans and animals is shown by how hard the animals work to save the sky woman and help her build the land, in the myth it says “Just before she reached the waters they caught her on their backs and brought her to the other animals”. Another similarity
Native Americans have a very rich and interesting past. The story “The World on the Turtle’s Back” told by the Iroquois Indians is a story of how the world came to be and the good and evils in the world. The story “The Way to Rainy Mountain“ by Scott Momaday, is a story of about the Kiowa traditions and the way that they lived. Both of these stories show how important it is to respect the gods. “The World on the Turtle’s Back” is a myth about a man and a woman that lived in the sky world.
Marriage was very common and a repeated act. Divorce within the Shawnee was common but there is no report of polygamy.

A creation myth explains what each culture believes about the creation of the world and how people first entered into it. The two creation myths “African Bushmen Creation Myth” and “Iroquois Creation Myth” both explain the creation of Earth as well as their ideas of how people came to be. While the two creation myths have many similarities, differences may lie in the characters, personalities, setting, and plot. Creation myths have many similarities because many cultures develop with the same basic elements. Three comparisons from the creation myths “African Bushmen Creation Myth” and “Iroquois Creation Myth” caught my attention in a very special way.
Following to the appearance to the Ritual Axe, the axe seems to be only made by wood and iron, but no jewelry were embedded. Although there was no jewelry or precious stones on the Ritual Axe, Owo was the most powerful kingdom in the eastern Yorubaland. Being a powerful kingdom has no effect on how the wealth or sources the artist could have. The artist of the artwork possibly chose to use a medium that was easily available to them, especially since any jewels, stones, or gold were limited to the area the Yoruba people were living in. The Yoruba people were not afraid to expand their territory to gain more opportunities for advance trade and to expand the areas for agriculture.
Hello, everybody. After reading all the assigned stories and viewing the lecture, I gained a strong interest for The Iroquois Creation Story. I was quite drawn to one of the beliefs over the piece once it was mentioned in the lecture because I shared the same thought while reading the narrative. Numerous individuals find it odd that Enigorio is said to be the good twin in the story while Enigonhahetgea is said to be the evil twin. The peculiarity seen in this aspect of the story originated because the readers of the tale learn that the “evil” twin attempts to prevent the human beings from eating the animals, which may be seen as a good deed.
Relations between the Indigenous People of Canada and first settlers have been a tumultuous and often dark chapter of Canada’s geography. The movie Avatar is a fair comparison to the Indigenous people and first settlers of Canada because of the greed for resources, attempts at assimilation and shared Aboriginal culture. The first settlers of Canada were notorious for their greed of resources, much that belonged to the Indigenous people. In order to access the economic base, the Europeans pushed out the Indigenous from their homes into reserves. As well, mankind attempted to push out the Na’vi to access the land and precious minerals in the movie Avatar.
Aboriginal cultural identity is shaped by the Aboriginal people’s unshakeable determination, spiritual connection, reliance, and understanding of animals and the land they share with them. Oodgeroo of the tribe Nunuccal’s poetry represents Aboriginal culture by showing the responder that these values, even under the force of European settlement, have remained untouched within the identity of Aboriginal peoples. Oodgeroo’s poems, “The Ballad of the Totems” and “Time is Running Out” (both published in ‘The Dawn is at Hand’, 1966) are poems which highlight Aboriginal people’s connection to the land, connection to animals, and how European and modern ways of life have challenged the Aboriginal ways. Ultimately Oodgeroo’s representation of Aboriginal
