Huron mythology

The Wyandot (also called Huron) are a tribe of Native Americans originally from Ontario, Canada, and surrounding areas.

The shamans of a Wyandot tribe were called Arendiwane[?] (or Arendi wane[?], Orendi wane[?]).

According to Wyandot mythology, Iosheka[?] created the first man and woman and taught them many skills, including all their religious ceremonies and rituals, the ability to fight evil spirits, healing, and the use of the sacrament of tobacco.
