        Native Voices | American Passages: Unit 1

        Explore how American Indian oral traditions link people to the culture, myths, and land in this half-hour video from the series American Passages. Traditionally, the oral storyteller is a human individual who relates the mythological to others. Contemporary American Indian written literature draws on oral traditions even as it translates them into European forms. These stories are necessary for the culture to survive in the era after European contact. A kind of "cultural contact," this written literature deals with the interaction of Native and European cultures and identities.
