Sometimes, however, the distinction between myth and religion is a bit fuzzy, and sometimes legend becomes a sort of catch-all euphemism, but the resource is careful to use (and tell how to pronounce) the Native tribal names and provides sufficient evidence that Native People contribute to contemporary American life in many ways. Sources include the excellent Carl Waldman works as well as biographical materials and coverage of history, religion, social issues, civil rights, economics, and education; all of these make the database a comprehensive collection. Other features include an occupation search within biographies, a key word search for legends by culture, related links in sidebars, and tabbed folders with key word hit lists that divide the search results into Biographies, Events & Topics, Primary Sources, Images, and Maps/Charts, listing the number of hits in each type of resource.
