Margie Ward Gatti, tribal elder, arranges the display of Muscogee
Nation artifacts that inspire her stories. I asked for different stories
than the popular ones she told last year. The stories were:
Here's a forward to the Muscogee
Nation display. Or back to B2N04, sharing
- The boys who went too far in the woods and younger
ate the big egg and turned into a water snake.
- The race proposed by the rabbit and the way the turtles
worked as a team to win. That’s my video.
- The rabbit having animals do creator's work to do the constellations
in their own images. Loved the part about backing up a little and
going to the side to walk up in the dome of the sky. Rabbits bag
of stones thrown out created all the rest of the stars.
- The girl who went up the mountain path until seeing a crack.
Went in and found an old woman who taught her to weave. The poncho
had to have a neck, a round opening that is the way out. The teaching
was to always leave a way to get back, no matter what you do.
