The People Who Were Here Before Speak to the People Here Now.
Garvey, James W.
The value of hearing, contemplating, and remembering the ancient tales of the Seneca Indians of upstate New York is the theme of this paper. Three of the legends, the Storytelling Stone, the Woman Who Fell from the Sky, and Naked Bear, are related by the author. They are considered for their mythic concerns and in terms of their value and relation to modern people living in upstate New York. (TJ)
