In this episode of Strange Matters a number of legends and myths that all come from various Native American cultures are presented and discussed.
The Thunderbird was a mighty bird which was said to have the power to create thunderstorms. Depending on the particular tribe’s version of this mythical creature, the Thunderbird could either be a protective force or a deadly menace. Even more interesting about this legendary creature is that there are still sightings and encounters with mysterious giant birds across America to this day, leading some to believe in the existence of the Thunderbird.
Much like the Thunderbird, the legend of the Little People is one that is seen across a wide range of Native American societies. Though extremely short in stature, the Little People would prove to be a big problem to many tribes, with their antics ranging all the way from simple pranks… to murder.
Finally, two creepy legendary creatures of the night are discussed. The Keelut was a skinless dog which possessed an evil spirit. This dark beast would stalk its prey through the snow, paralyzing and attacking anyone who was unfortunate to see it. The Baykok were once warriors and hunters of the Ojibwa who died in disgrace. Now, their restless spirits continue to roam the lands, hunting their living tribesman in the night and devouring them alive.
Enjoy this episode all about the legends and myths of the Native American people!
