Native American Bee Mythology

Bees do not feature very often in the mythology of Native American tribes. Sometimes bees appear in cautionary tales warning people not to disrespect nature, as they are small but capable of defending themselves. In South American legends, bees are sometimes portrayed as small but fierce warriors capable of slaying larger but less courageous foes. Bees and their honey are also associated with fertility in some tribes and are considered good luck for couples trying to conceive.
