The Natural and the Supernatural Kiowa The Way to Rainy Mountain, a collection of mythos and generation focuses on Momaday and how he traces his ancestral roots back to the beginning of the Kiowa tribe. The collection concentrates on a series of oral stories from Kiowa tradition written down, where the stories link together and narrate the entire life from begginning to the end of the Kiowa tribe. The oral stories that are passed down involve many supernatural and natural instances. In many myths, supernatural instances , or a force beyond scientific understanding, are very common to see. By definition, anything that exists naturally is not supernatural.

This larger category of nations, so named for the language they speak, are called Athabaskan people. Beneath the Dene umbrella are nations of Dogrib, Chipewyan, south and north Slavey, and Gwich’in of northern Canada; and the Navajo of the South Western United States (Ryan, 1). The Word Dene literally means “people”, and the area they have always occupied in the Northwest Territories, Denendeh, was appropriately named to mean “land of the people” (“Welcome to the Dene Nation”, 2012) It is diﬃcult to speak of one aspect of Dene culture without speaking of all others. Their history, spiritual beliefs and political values are all intertwined. The Dene have always had strong ties to each other, to animals, to the earth and to the spiritual world.

The state of Maine has many cultural influences that have shaped the state over the years. The earliest culture known to have inhabited Maine, were the Red Paint People, a maritime group known for their elaborate burials using red ochre. They were followed by the Susquehanna culture, the first to use pottery. By the time of European arrival, the inhabitants of Maine were Algonquian-speaking Wabanaki peoples.

Local History of The Crossing-Over Place Local history is about making a connection of past, present, and, at times, the future. It is a mode by which to gain perspective on broader, national events. Coll Thrush, in Native Seattle, uses this perspective by looking at the presence of urban Indian culture and its association to Indians of the past in order to connect a sense of time and place among a specific culture group. Thrush makes the case himself that all history is local (p.16). He even goes as far as to say that other American cities have potential for these kinds of stories – the broader perspective.
