S2 E6: Heroines & Heroes - Native American Ojibwe - Tale of Nanabozho

Stories That Made Us

08-06-2021 • 34 min

Welcome to a brand new episode of Stories That Made Us! This week we recount a wonderful tale of the great Algonquian hero – Nanabozho. Keen listeners and old followers of the podcast would remember Nanabozho – for he played a grand role in the creation of the Anishinaabe world – helping the great spirit – the Kitchi Manitou to build our world and populate it with all beings – making everything the way we see it today. Check out episode 6 of the first series for that awesome tale.


Now, this episode continues with the tales of this great hero of the Native Americans of the great lakes. Anthropologists and scholars, those who study the Anishinaabe Adizookaan – traditional storytellings – believe this hero to be a trickster spirit, a culture hero that features prominently in the traditional folklore of the many native American tribes of the great lakes. Often appearing in the shape of a rabbit or a giant man – as is the case in this tale – he is a shapeshifter and is responsible for teaching mankind all the good things we know.


This story is one of his many tales and has been taken from the book titled, “The Indian Fairy Book – From the Original Legends” by Henry Schoolcraft.
