The Myths of Nature
Mythology started as stories told by humans to explain their natural surroundings and why certain events occurred in nature. Humans created stories to explain echoes, rainbows, constellations, sunsets, etc. Our site shows how the Greek and Lakota cultures explained natural mysteries. We have myths from both, a dictionary, activities, and more!
