Legends and Prophecies of the Quero Apache: Tales for Healing and Renewal
The well-guarded cosmology of the Apaches comes to light through the wisdom of these traditional teaching tales.
• Told by the granddaughter of the Apache elder Ten Bears.
• Includes 13 stories of the Tlish Diyan (Apache Snake Clan).
• Provides contemporary insights into these legends to make them relevant to the modern reader.
In a small canyon in the White Mountains of Arizona a young girl sits and listens to her grandfather's stories. They tell of a people known as the Tlish Diyan, or Snake Clan, and how they came to be. She learns the story of her parents and grandparents, uncles and aunts, and an entire lineage that weaves between four leggeds, two leggeds, spirits, ancestors, ritual, adventure, and the creation of the world by Changing Mother and the Giver of All Life. In this way she comes to know and find her place in All Our Relations. This child is Maria Yracébûrû, granddaughter of Apache holy man Ten Bears and the hereditary recipient of his philosophy, legends, prophecy, and knowledge.
In the traditional storytelling ways of her ancestors, Maria Yracébûrû respectfully weaves her contemporary experience into the tapestry of tales passed down from generations. The legends of the Tlish Diyan she presents in Legends and Prophecies of the Quero Apache relay how sacred universal laws govern our relationship to the natural world, our interaction with nature, and our respect for each other.
