Excerpt from The Journal of American Folk-Lore, 1909, Vol. 22With the Eastern group there is almost as slight an agreement in this class of incidents as in the connected cycle. Four incidents only are found to agree, the hoodwinked dancers, rolling rock, visit to the culture-hero, and bungling host. The latter, at least, is of such very wide distribution that its importance in this case may be regarded as slight.An extensive comparison of the incidents found among the Algonkins here described, with those of other tribes, such as those in the Plains, the Southwest, or the Pacific Coast, has not been made, but a few general statements may be made. The connected cycle of incidents seems to be quite clearly typical of the tribes living near the Great Lakes. We find the greater part of it among the Blackfeet, although lacking among the Arapaho and Cheyenne, showing either the longer residence of these latter tribes in the Plains, or their greater impressibility to the mythology of the Plains type. A portion appears among the Siouan tribes, where it occurs in the Iowa and Omaha. The other disconnected tales of the culture-hero cannot, however, be regarded as very distinctive. Many of the incidents, such as the bungling host, are of very wide distribution over the whole continent, and others, although not so widely spread, still are found among a large number of tribes outside this area.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
