25. Puckwudgies: Little People of the Woods | Mission Spooky - Podcast on Goodpods
<p>"If you ever see them, don't be afraid. Talk to them, be nice to them, and they will bring you luck." Kiki defends the honor of the sometimes mischievous Puckwudgies against the brutal onslaught of JC. Kiki takes us on a tour of the great North American legend of the Little People of the Woods with stories from the New England Mohegan tribe, heading down south to the Muskogean tribal legend of the Choctaw and then ending with Pennsylvania's local Algonquian tribal tale from the Lenni Lenape. </p> <p>Our featured music is from <a href="//" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Foghorn Lonesome</a> with the song "Ghosts of the Oak".</p> <p>Resources used for this episode: </p> <ul> <li><a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Native Languages</a></li> <li><a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">First Peoples</a></li> <li>Adams, Richard C., Legends of the Delaware Indians and Picture Writing, Syracuse University Press, 1997 Original publication - 1905. ; </li> <li>The Good Giants and the Bad Puckwudgies. ; The Deetkatoo: Native American Stories About Little People by John Bierhorst </li> <li>Love's Calendar, Lays of the Hudson, and Other Poems By Charles Fenno Hoffman (notes at the end talk about the puckwudgies specifically as not being mean-spirited but just spirits of the forest.)</li> </ul> --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. <a href=""></a> --- Send in a voice message: Support this podcast: <a href="" rel="payment"></a>
