The first episode of much-requested Native American folklore has giants, ghosts, anthropomorphic coyotes, jilted lovers, and the reason for why the tick got so flat. Because you've always wondered how the wood tick got to be so flat.
On the creature of the week, it's an animal from Australian folklore who is lurking in stagnant water, just waiting to give you a deadly hug.

It didn’t help me at all thanks a lot 😒
This website isn’t really that helpful so you probably need to make more stuff on this website sorry for leaving you such a bad comment but this website needs some stuff like paul bunyan or native americans stuff but like i said sorry for the the bad comment
Man i love this. Keep up the good work :D
The ‘four ghosts’ story is rather strikingly reminiscent of the Grimms’ “The Story Of The Youth Who Went Forth To Learn What Fear Was” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Story_of_the_Youth_Who_Went_Forth_to_Learn_What_Fear_Was], though with a numerical motif of four rather than three [as would be appropriate for most indigenous American groups]
It is my understanding that there was a fair amount of Native American engagement with European story-telling traditions [particularly among the Metis communities in the north], though I have no idea whether this ‘four ghosts’ tale represents such an instance – may of course simply be coincidental resemblances.
Very interesting stories. I remember this bunyip song in an old Australian movie…kind of creepy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtrYO-Mog60
I love this, and I feel like with the iffy production value and lo-fi quality it comes out way creepier than it even intended. Thanks!
