Native American Deities – Yamozha

Yamozha is the benevolent culture hero of the Dene tribes (sometimes referred to as a “transformer” by folklorists.) He is generally portrayed as a heroic monster-slayer and friend to mankind, though there are some stories about him that are humorous in nature. Frequently he uses his cleverness rather than his strength to defeat his enemies, at which point he either kills them or transforms them into something harmless. His name literally means “traveler” or “wanderer.”

Freeze dried food is a Native Invention. The Inca of Peru used to preserve potatoes using a freeze-dry process. They would put them on mountain terraces, and the solar radiation and extremely cold temperatures created a freeze-dried product that lasted indefinitely.
