Come sit around the fire and I will tell you a story.  Indeed, I will tell you many stories ... many older than the written word ... fantastic stories just as they were told for centuries during the winter in Iroquois longhouses and Lakota tipis and Navajo hogans, by Indian peoples long before the term "Indian" was ever conceived.  Do you know why Coyote howls at night, and why Possum has no hair on his tail?  Do you know how the Yokuts world was created and where the Hopi came from?  Do you know why there are earthquakes?  Do you know where dream catchers come from?  Come.  Sit around the fire ... and I will tell you.
