Native American Trickster Tales (1)
Publication Date: June 6, 2011
Chapter: American Literature to 1700
I decided it was time for some more "Meanwhile in America..." since I could use a change of pace. We return, then, to the Native Americans, since their mythology is really, really weird, and therefore kinda fun to draw. The American Norton has a broad selection of tales from several different tribes from across the Americas. The section I'm on now focuses particularly on the "Trickster," a recurring figure in most native traditions who comes in many forms and generally causes mischief (while simultaneously helping the young human race advance).
Also, that last panel isn't a joke: the Trickster in Canada really was represented by the Wolverine. It was seriously too perfect.
