Top 10 Scary Native American Urban Legends – Part 2

Top 10 Scary Native American Urban Legends – Part 2

Hello and welcome to the Most Amazing Channel
on the Internet! I am your host, Miss Rebecca Jane Felgate
– you loved part one so part two is ON…this is the Top 10 Scary Native Urban Legends PART
2! I love these Urban legends videos as I feel
like I am learning some really good cultural history! Do you guys like history to? If so what is your favourite period of history
you have learned about? I love ancient cultures like Greeks, Romans
and Egyptians, but I also love Europe 1910 – 1945. It was all kicking off wasn’t it! Let’s have a history chat in the comments
section down below – Thunder is a
big part of most Native American cultures… this
legend comes from the Cherokee…. 10- The Thunder Boys
Okay there are actually two concerning Cherokee myths and legends about thunder – One is
a legend that involves so called Little People who cause sharp claps of thunder and can cause
lightning strikes near women, causing them to be impregnated with a Little Person, who
is destined to be born and continue the lineage of the small thunder people…. But the most popular legend is of the Thunder
Boys, the sons of the first man who live in the earths cliffs, mountains and waterfalls. The Thunder boys bring rain which blesses
the earth, but they can also choose to harm people and bring about mischief. A legend that is very close to my adopted
home in Toronto… 9 – The Dragon of Lake Ontario
According to the Seneca people, there is a fire breathing dragon that lives in the rivers
and lakes of Canada, but most prominently in Lake Ontario…sooo I better watch out
when I am on the Toronto Islands over the summer! I might be snatched by Gaasyendietha … what
a tongue twister. Gaasyendietha was thought to have travelled
to earth in a meteor and landed in the lake that sits amid the border of the USA and Canada. The story of the dragon permeates both native
American and early settler history. Back when Toronto was called York and Canada
wasn’t its own thing yet, European settlers noticed something going on in Lake Ontario. Was it a giant snake? Was it a trick of the eye? As the 1800s progressed and the city that
would eventually become Toronto developed, more reports of a huge 30ft snake in the lake
kept surfacing. It seems old snakey in the lakey liked to
swim, too. He was also spotted in Kingston, Ontario leading
to the popular legends of Kingstie. Sure enough, the Seneca had called it long
before the 1800s sightings. Today many cryptozoologists think the lake
monster could be some sort of relict Plesiosaur, a large, long necked marine reptile. The last time someone spotted Gaasyendietha
was in the late 1960s. 8 – The Animals Revenge
I hate to break it to you but, according to the Cherokee anyway, animals are NOT happy
with us… and I guess who can blame them. The people of the Cherokee still exist today
and originated from the Appalachians…. My goodness it is my absolute dream to hike
the Appalachian trail! I feel it in my bones. That being said, I would need to do my best
to appease the animals! It is a long held belief that once upon a
time animals and humans lived in peace and harmony – back then the power of all animals,
including the humans, was far more equal, but then the human population started to swell…which
meant that they got stronger. Legend has it that the animals met to discuss
what they would do to protect themselves. It is said that a council of deers and bears
met and decided to bring plague on hunters who killed for sport rather than need, and
a council of birds, insects and small animals concocted infectious disease to spread humans
too. Luckily the plants are on our side, and they
vowed that for every disease created by the animals, they would create a cure. Sadly there is no cure for human weapons like
bullets and knives though, ehy… just a good old fashioned hopeful stitch up. 7 – The Burial Grounds
Ahh, the ancient Native Burrial Ground! This is an enduring urban legend across America
and basically the premise of the movie Poltergeist. There are many a ghosts story that come from
the building upon sacred ground, usually by big cooperation’s who disregard the scare
stories surrounding land they think will be profitable. One example comes from Rockrimmon, Colorado
Springs, which is alleged to be built on an ancient burial ground and old native American
settlement. The Rockimmon restaurant in question has been
haunted by an angry looking native American man with a dour face. Apparently the disgruntled ghost turns on
taps, jangles keys and produces phantom screams… could be worse though, right?! 6 – The Bearers of Bad News
Beware the Owls – or so say the Cherokee. Owls are actually a very important part of
a lot of native American cultures… the owls man…. The owls are not what they seem…. Anyone else a twin peaks fan? I personally love a good owl, but it seems
to the Cherokee people they are messengers, but not just any messengers, owls bring bad
news or bad luck. For the Apache people, dreaming of an owl
signifies an approaching death… and to the cree people, answering an owl with a whistle
and hearing no response is another signifier of death. These owls. Baddies. 5 – The Ghost Dance
The Ghost Dance is a relatively new religious movement that has been incorporated into a
number of native American beliefs. The dance was established in around the 1890s
in accordance to the teachings of Wovoka. The dance, which is still performed today
by the Caddo of Oklahoma today, is intended to reunited the living with the spirits of
the dead, bringing the spirits back to fight white colonists and to bring about peace and
unity for the tribes. It is thought by performing the dance, people
can bring about a new world. 4 – The Ice Giant Chenoo
The legend of Chenoo comes from the Wabanaki people and is somewhat similar to legends
of the Sasquatch or the abominable snowman. Chenoo is supposed to be a huge bigfood like
creature that lives in snowy plains. He was once a human who committed a horrible
crime, which led to his heart freezing and him being turned into a troll like monster
who cared only to kill any human he can find, with all love and compassion a long distant
memory! 3 – Water Panther
Oooh this is another from near my hood, although a lot of first nations people across America
believe in the Water Panther, not just the people of the Algonquin. I have been to Algonquin Park a few times
and I have to admit it is pretty freaky at night… I wrote a blogpost on my website about a night
spent under a full moon in the park which was horrifying in many ways… but I never
encountered the Water Panther. The Cree, Algonquin and Shawnee believe that
there is a water monster, a giant dragonlike feline who dwells in rivers and lakes who
waits for humans to come close and then pulls them under and drowns them. The Panther is said to have a tail that can
hold stuff too, making it even better at killing. There is indeed a lake called Panther Lake
in Algonquin National Park …which I feel like I need to stay away from next time I
go back…. I’d probably stay away from Bandit Lake
and Mouse Lake too. 2 – The Ghosts of Wounded Knee
The Wounded knee massacre took place in Pine Ridge at Wounded Knee Creek on December 29
1890. It seems that Spotted Elk, a leader on the
US Army’s list of Trouble Making Indians was stopped by officers who forced him to
relocate with his people to Wounded Knee. The next morning, the US Army opened fire
when one deaf member of a small Lakota tribe didn’t relinquish his weapon. 23 US soldiers died, mostly from their own
friendly fire, and 153 Lakota, mostly women and children were killed. These days it is said by those who still live
and work around the cabins and community of wounded knee head the cries of women and children
echoing through the canyon, especially in winter. 1 – He Who Must Not Be Named
This is kind of like the Native American Voldemort…. Now I know JK Rowling’s dark wizard is a
work of fiction, and even if he wasn’t I am a Slytherin and I fancy my chances in a
cheeky duel… but I don’t know about invoking the spirit of a dark soul eater from the Choctaw
tribe. They have a name for it… but I am not going
to say it because the Choctaw avoid saying it at all costs. It seems that this soul eater is a shadow
who permeates into peoples bodies, filling them with evil thoughts and depression. Eventually it creeps into their very soul
and eats them alive. You don’t want an encounter with this shadow
spirit….so don’t say his name. Well well well! That was the Top 10 Scary Native American

  1. Oh yeah and just don't say "indians" bcs we are native americans bcs Natives find that disrespectful we aren't Indians

  2. Being half native and hearing this make me happy to hear about the stories that my ancestors used to tell

  3. I'd love to hear the stories Native peoples from around the world don't tell, because they think we will think they're crazy. I won't. The strangeness is real.

  5. A month late but the name of the thing at the end of the video is called Nalusa Chito also known as Impa Shilup

  6. To answer your history question, I love medieval history because I love how knights are brave, tough, chivalrous and they like to take pictures with me, not even kidding, the knights at the renaissance festival!

  7. Why do people always say that in the movie Poltergeist the house is haunted by "native Americans spirits" when literally in the movie they say it's not "Ancient tribal barrel ground". In the second movie the family finds out that the house was haunted by a some what church cult that died in a cave underneath the house 🤔😑

  8. I love history, but I'm tired of war. I prefer to learn about what happened in between or in places that weren't at war at the time.

    They went to war and this side is considered the winner is usually all I need anymore……although I do enjoy earing about battles that seemed one sided and then the insanely outnumbered won. And amazing warriors too.

    But Inventors and their inventions fascinate me. The politics that go on both during, before and after are usually pretty interesting.

  9. Oh i womder why they dont have views hmmm let me think oh probably because it scars the the life out of people

  10. I live in the Appalachias and if you ever get a chance to visit, you have to see Crabtree Falls. It's breathtaking 😀

  11. My sister has a native boyfriend and she asked about the Windago I don’t no how to spell it but she said that they told her to stop talking and they were quiet for a minute and they changed the subject

  12. I heard of something named the thunder brothers they are some kind a big ape that walks on to feet and it can’t climb

  13. Ho'ok (haw awk) is a witch like woman who ate the children of O'otham and Pima Tribes (my tribe) but she ate them an i believe she use their skin or bones to make a bag in order to carry the children and she lived in the mountain.

  14. I like when she talks about scary stories, her voice is just so high pitched.It makes me think my girlfriend is telling me a story while looking at memes

  15. I've always been fascinated by the Age of Warring States period that lasted from mid to late 15th century until early 17th century
