    The Real Quileutes Mythological History!

    Post  Pretty_Twisted on Tue Mar 31, 2009 9:14 pm

    Here we will post, discuss and share topics based on Stephenie Meyer's take on the Quileute Tribe and the real Quileute legends in our society. Feel free to post more as you please....(unless i am the only loser that was intersted in it after reading the book....IDK lol)

    The Quileute is a Chimakoan tribe living along the Quileute River, a six-mile river on the Olympic Peninsula. The fishing village of La Push is at its mouth.

    Perhaps the best documented skinwalker beliefs are those pertaining to the Navajo yee naaldlooshii (literally “with it, he goes on all fours” in the Navajo language). A yee naaldlooshii is one of many forms of Navajo witch. Technically, the term refers to an ’ánt’įįhnii who is using his (rarely her) powers to travel in animal form. In a few adaptations men or women who have achieved the highest level of priesthood then perpetrate the act of slaying an immediate family member, and then have therefore acquired the evil abilities that are affiliated with skinwalkers. This Legend suggests that the yee naaldlooshii is attained whereas with the Native American Quileute Legend suggests that the Quileutes are descended from wolves.

    Some Navajo also think that skinwalkers posses the power to steal the “skin” or physical structure of a human. The Navajo believe that if you engage eyes with a skinwalker they can immerse themselves into your body. It’s also told that skinwalkers body temperature rises rapidly, similar to the stories of werewolves as in the Twilight Series version of the Quileute Legend, and that their eyes gleam like an creature’s when in human being shape and once in beast form their eyes don’t radiate as an animal’s would.

    Since animal hides are applied mainly by skinwalkers, the hide of beasts such as bears, coyotes, wolves, and cougars are stringently tabooed. Sheepskin and buckskin are likely two of the few pelts utilised by Navajos; the latter is utilised only for ceremonial occasions.

    Frequently, Navajos will speak of their brush with a skinwalker, although there’s a heap of hesitance to divulge the report to non-Navajos, or (clearly) to verbalise of such scaring matters at dark. Occasionally the skinwalker will attempt to breach into the house and assault the inhabits within, and will oftentimes bang on the walls of the home, bang on the windowpanes, and climb up onto the roofs.

    Sometimes, a unusual, animal-like shape is watched standing outside the window, looking in. It has been told that a skinwalker might assault a vehicle and make a automobile accident. The skinwalkers are depicted as being fast, quick, and out of the question to overtake. Although a few attempts have been made to shoot or kill one, they are not typically successful. Occasionally a skinwalker will be hunted, only to lead to the house of somebody known to the tracker. As in Quileute werewolf lore, sometimes a injured skinwalker will escape, only to have someone show up afterwards with a similar injury which reveals them to be the witch. It’s told that if a Navajo was to recognize the individual behind the skinwalker they had to say the full name, and about three days afterwards that person would either get ill or die for the wrong that they’ve committed.

    According to Navajo legend, skinwalkers can have the ability to read other skinwalkers thoughts, another thing that was played on in the Twilight Series to much appreciation.

    A few tribes think that skinwalkers and other witches can use the spit, hair, or shoes and old garmenting of a individual to make curses that will assault that specific person. Because of this many Navajo will never spit or leave shoes outside. They also take avid caution to see that any hair or nail clippings are destroyed. Children are advised that if they urinate outside to kick dirt across the area so that a skinwalker can’t utilize it to establish a curse against them.
