5 Native American Folklore Creatures

#2 Mishipeshu

Also known as the Underwater Panther. This creature always live near waters such as creeks, rivers or lakes. They would lie in wait like a cat waiting for their prey in a distance and would pounce at them while dragging them toward the body of water just to drown them.

The description of the creature varies from tribes to tribes. Some saying its the size of a mountain lion while others say they are truly humongous. But of course they are said to have cat-like features, some scales on its body and a long tail.

Other than dragging people to drown, the Panther is said to be quite magical. As its able to control storm and water flow at their will. So while its mostly malicious, if you get on their good side, it is said that it will protect and help those in its domain.
