The general category "Traditional Narratives" was applied to a whole series of articles focusing on Native American traditional narratives. A few questions and issues though for later:

  1. Should be "Traditional narratives" in keeping with the rest of wp capitalizations
  2. Cat name "Traditional narratives" does not specify "Native American", but the discussion on the User page did, and included suggestion to put Trad Narratives in "Native American culture" category. But probably the category should be "Native American traditional narratives", or else "traditional narratives" will end up also collecting similar stories from around the world.
  3. In particular, I'm not sure that "traditional narratives" articles included here only look at the trad. narratives from the US, where indigenous popoulations are called "Native Americans"; does it also include Canada, where indigenous populations are called First Nations? Mexico? Central/South American countries?
