An analysis of Native American myth and religion, archaeological anomalies and folklore that suggests cultural diffusion with ancient cultures was not only possible in the ancient history of the Americas, but probable.
Folklorist Gary R. Varner takes a lengthy look at various myths, legends and beliefs of Native Americans in this book. Included are stories and archaeological finds from various lands that suggest cultural contacts between explorers from China, Japan, the Mediterranean and Europe with Native Americans in pre-Columbian times.
Native American folklore and myths are examined including the universal legends of the flood and stories of the mysterious god-men such as Quetzalcoatl, Votan and Chnigchinix, who brought the arts, technology and civilization to indigenous cultures. Mysteries of Native American Myth and Religion is a fact-filled, yet fascinating story of the original inhabitants of North and South America.
Varner has written several books on folklore and mythology and is a member of the American Folklore Society and the Foundation for Mythological Studies.
