Hi everyone!

I'm a Resident Assistant at my university and I have been recently assigned to work as the RA on the Native American Cultural floor. I am not Native American, and I have very limited knowledge about the various cultures that are included under this term. So, this is where you all come in: What kinds of ghost stories do you know that come from Native cultures? (Depending on how much I can gather, Im looking to spin this info into some kind of program for the fall).

Thanks in advance!
Believe as if your life depended on it, for indeed it does.

Hi, ghosthuntress! Here's a good place to start:

Thanks so much for the link, earth_spirit! The interesting (and also sad) thing is that I was told that none of the students on the floor currently identify as Native American. Im not sure how much that will change for the coming year.
