I wanted to announce I will began a new blog series soon with the subject matter of "Little Known Mythologies"! This is not to say they are not necessarily known to you but you will not be reading the typical Greek/Roman mantra of re-hatched reruns that so widely populates mainstream media.
I am not anti-Greco as it may seem so let me explain! In research for my stories I come across ideas and frequently take inspiration from the random reading of the original 'fantasy authors' even if most of these stories of that time were actual beliefs not just entertainment.
The subsequent posts will cover:
Finnish myths (Brrr...Is it cold in here?)
Hawaiian myths ('Aloha makamaka')
Inuit myths (Hiding from the Northern Lights with a knife under your pillow? Yep, some tribes did it.)
At the end of each post I will place links to further sources of information and further reading! I hope you enjoy!
