Historical Background

In Native American mythology (specifically the Cherokee), Nun’yunu’wi is a dangerous man-eating giant. It looked like an old man with a cane made out of a bright, shiny rock material, but its skin was made out of solid rock. When thrown, this cane could expand and form a bridge. This cane also allowed Nun’yunu’wi to have an incredible sense of smell with which to track his quarry. He could only be weakened by the sight of several women currently having their period (many cultures have superstitions and taboos surrounding menstruation). Seven such women weakened him enough to be bound to the ground with stakes, ropes, and logs. He also had knowledge of many secrets, such as medicines to cure numerous sicknesses. The logs were set on fire to get him to reveal such secrets. The next morning, beneath the ashes of the wood, all that remained was a large glob of red paint and a magic stone. Any hunter who used that paint would have success in hunting. Nun’yunu’wi means “dressed in stone” in Cherokee.
