Cherokee Legends - Tsalagi Oral Stories - Aniyunwiya Myths




Cherokee stories tell of strange, giant animals that once roamed the mountains, hearkening back to the end of the Ice Age. Raven Mocker is a killer witch figure that figures prominently in many legends. Kana'ti and Selu were the first people, the Cherokeesí Adam and Eve. The water beetle, Dayaunishi, brought up mud from under water to form the earth, and the great buzzard shaped the Great Smoky Mountains with his wings.

Tsi'yu-gunsini - Dragging Canoe, Chickamaugas Chief
Tsi'yu-gunsini was a war leader who led a dissident band of young Cherokees against the United States in the American Revolutionary War. Dragging Canoe is considered by many to be the most significant leader of the Southeast, and provided a significant role model for the younger Tecumseh, who was a member of a band of Shawnee living with the Chickamaugas and taking part in their wars.

The Raven Mocker is the most dreaded of Cherokee witches
A Raven Mocker can be of either sex, and there is no real way to know one. They usually look old and withered, because they have added so many lives to their own.
