Description

Three audio cassette recordings. Seminole storyteller Hancock describes how he learned stories from several Seminole elders, including Billy Bowlegs III, even though he spent little time on reservations as his father worked for the US Corps of Engineers. Students ask Hancock extensively about Seminole life and the tribe's leadership, hunting, games, clans, religion, holidays, and chickees. Afterwards, he tells origin stories, including "How the Sun Came to Be," "How the Stars Came to Be," and "How the Mosquitos Came to Be."
