Ancient T'Suu Tina Stories

"A Story About a Witch" as told by Tony Starlight

These are our thoughts about the Tsuu T'ina legends that have been read or told to us:

Most legends that we have read have the number 4 in the story. We think the number 4 is important to the T'Suu Tina people. We read about 4 gods, 4 elements, things happened 4 times and so on.

There was always a lesson to their stories.The stories were told as if they were real. Some people believed they were. Some stories seemed more real than others. Sometimes people get what they need out of stories but be careful what you wish for because you might get it and it might not turn out how you thought it might be. There are often warnings in their stories but people don't always listen to the warnings. Sometimes there is magic.

The stories talked about how everything has a spirit. There were animals in every T'Suu Tina story we read.

Remember to believe in the Creator because he will protect you. Don't be afraid of who you are. Listen to what other people have to say.Treat people how you would like to be treated.
