The Nlha7kapmx Oral Tradition of the Three Bears: Interpretations Old and New.
Johnson, Carl Garth
Canadian Journal of Native Education, v25 n1 p37-50 2001
Non-Native scholarly interpretations of The Three Bears--a traditional story of the Nlha7kapmx Nation--focus on mythology as simplistic science to explain the physical world. In contrast, a Nlha7kapmx interpretation illuminates connections of land to people. Such stories reinforce cultural identity and teach young people about the spiritual power that resides in their land. (Contains 26 references.) (Author/SV)
