    Old Man is in many tribes stories. Some are very funny when the trickster is involved. I spoke in an earlier comment of the sky people, (the Sspommitapiiksi). I was reading the Hebrews book of Enoch recently and was stunned when I read the same story of the sky people or fallen angles created by Naapi (God) that came and took for themselves the women on the earth. I believe many stories we call legends today are based on past fact.

      I absolutely agree Campfireshadows that many ‘legends’ especially ancient ones were based on actual events. People then had a deep connection to the Earth & Nature. Growing up Native America I learned early about a Spirit that lives in all things—not just people but animals, trees, flowers and even rocks. When you carry that respect into the forest or a group of animals, for example, you often have experiences or see things that are hard to explain without people thinking it’s a “story.” I suspect it’s also why people frequently comment in exhibitions of my work that they’ve never seen a forest (or rock, tree, or a flower) look quite like that before.

      Since I think you’ll find it equally as interesting, you might want to take a peek at a photo series I did of animal and human shaped rock formations in the Badlands of the Southwest titled Standing With the Ancient Ones. All these images, like the one shown below, were made on what was once Native land. Clicking here will take you to the 4-part series and also a virtual photo exhibition.

        I once commented to a fellow blogger who raises North Dakota horses (Nokotahorse) that whenever I see an Appaloosa horse, my neck hairs tingle as if my spirit is rejoicing. I am Christian yet I can ‘feel’ spirits and know when they are near. Some watch over me some watch over the place I am walking. I don’t call this a contradiction, instead I call it a gift. I will look at your photo’s tonight. Thank you my friend :)

        I hope you enjoy the photos of the rock formations but be prepared because those “neck hairs” might start tingling.

        I left a comment somewhere, not sure where after seeing your photos. You have the eye for sure :)

        Thanks for the great comments on the photos Campfireshadows, but it’s those rock formations that deserve all the credit. Also, you will find the post you mentioned and my reply on a different post: just click here.
