Internet project- type endings of Native American legends. Native American legends usually explain
a natural phenomena that could not be explained by
science such as:  Why rivers sparkle, how the sun
rises, why the ocean moves, how did the beaver get its
bushy tail, etc. Native American legends also have
animals as their main characters (they speak!) and
