The Papago Indians of the American Southwest say butterflies were created to gladden the hearts of children and chase away thoughts of aging and death. How the Butterflies Came to Be is one of twenty-four Native American tales included in Native American Animal Stories. The stories, coming from Mohawk, Hopi, Yaqui, Haida and other cultures demonstrate the power of animals in Native American traditions. The stories come to life through magical illustrations by Mohawk artists John Kahionhes Fadden and David Fadden.
