Native American Literature

What themes were predominant in the writings of the 1600s for Native Americans?

Native Americans did not have any literature in the 1600s, but they did have oral traditions and stories which had a few main themes. Some of these stories were moral lessons (not quite sure that is a theme or not), while other stories held wisdom, teaching you to do the right things.

    That's fine. But you forgot the creation myths. They were trying to make sense of a confusing universe.
