As I was doing some reading for my anthropology class, I came upon this section:
There is a North American Tribe called Nacirema and their mythology says that "their nation was originated by a culture hero, Notgnishaw, who is otherwise known for two feats of strength--the throwing of a piece of wampum across the river Pa-To-Mac and the chopping down of a cherry tree in which the Spirit of Truth resided."
um....does that remind anyone of the story of George Washington, who as a child chopped his father's cherry tree, but when asked told the truth, showing what a great guy he was?
whaaaa??? so damn cool.
