Americans have a complex and sometimes contradictory mythology.
Their stories of heroes and supernatural beings are recorded
onto scrolls such as these. Groups of Americans gather in
special story houses where they make small offerings and learn
the stories. The characters in these stories provide models
of appropriate behavior. These two scrolls depicting courtship
and conflict resolution are typical. There are only a couple
of dozen frequently-told stories, but the story-makers create
abundant variations by re-arranging and embellishing them.
