Story Telling Tradition Important to Native cultures because there was no written evidence of language. The Maya and Inca built “stella” that had writings on them. It was how they wrote about their  history.  Origin Stories: everyone has one! What makes you, YOU.  Because of this tradition, and the need to be passed on, they use colorful language in order to  remember main parts. It helps pass these main ideas on to the next generation.  A storyteller was an entertainer, there were no movies or books, the storytelling was the main  attraction.  Different types of stories: Trickster stories: about a clown who made all the mistakes. Story taught how to be.  Morality stories: how to act Superhero stories: heros sent to earth by God, had superpowers.  Gender­role stories: how women and men should act and fulfill their roles. Migration stories: how the different groups migrated to their place they are now.
