Pima Indian Legends.
Shaw, Anna Moore
The stated purpose of this book is to preserve in writing some of the Pima Indian legends that had been verbally passed from generation to generation in the past. This collection of 23 legends, which were originally used to instruct the young people of the tribe, presents in story form various aspects of American Indian life--including explanations of nature, family life, traditions, and cultural heritage. It is noted that, although the legends were recounted originally in the Piman tongue, they have been modified as the cultural traditions of those who learned them have changed; thus, as the legends started to be told in English, whole elements no longer appropriate were either reworded or dropped.
