Greetings of the season to all folks near and far.
Native American people were introduced to horses by the Spaniards in the mid 1500s. They had never seen such an animal. It was bigger than an elk and carried burdens like the tribal dogs did. They did not know the name of this magnificent animal, so they called it an elk dog.
Here is my latest article from the Folklore and Mythology site at BellaOnline.com.

The story of a young orphan boy who was an outcast of his tribe and became a brave young warrior and hero.
