Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Was Told not to do That!

When I was a kid I would have been shot into the middle of next week if I had food in my room.  That was against the law and violators were prosecuted. 

Well, as usual I have been griping about the ant problem in the kitchen but fortunately Clyde killed a number of nests so they aren’t there right now.  There is a huge army in our bedroom where I bring snacks.  I only have myself to blame for this one. 

Mommy told me not to do it but I dooed it anyway!

Here is another fascinating legend about the Cherokee Native Americans and the Black Bear!

 

The Bear Man

A Hunter shot one arrow after the next into a black bear and chased after it until the bear finally took the arrows out and told the man he couldn’t be killed and asked the hunter to come live with him.

This bear was a medicine bear and could talk and read people’s thoughts.  The hunter was worried the bear would hurt him but the bear told him he wouldn’t hurt him and there would be plenty to eat.

They came to a hole in the side of the mountain that widened as they entered.  It was not the bear’s home.  It was a meeting place for bear councils.  The other bears were alarmed at the presence of the hunter but the medicine bear told them it was only a stranger come to see them and he should be left alone.

The bear took the hunter to his home and rubbed his stomach and then his paws were full of chestnuts.  He did this many times for different kinds of food and both he and the hunter had plenty to eat.  The hunter stayed with him and his hair grew so long he was beginning to look like a bear.

One day the bear told him it was the day hunters would kill him. He told the hunter to put leaves over his remains after the kill.  The hunters entered the hole, killed the bear, and then realized the hairy creature was a hunter that has been missing for some time.  They  left with big chunks of bear meat and the hunter.  Before they left the hunter put leaves over the remains of the bear and as they were leaving the bear reappeared, shook off the leaves, and disappeared into the forest.

The hunter told the tribe to let him be by himself for seven day so he could shake off the bear nature and become a man again but his wife was so determined to see him that she went into him and took him home.  He never became like a man again.

Legend has it that if he had been allowed to be alone and fast for seven days he would not have kept the bear nature.

I found this story on on the online publication First People The Legends.
