“Most North American Indian tribes have as part of their mythos a deluge story. There is evidence in The Deerslayer that Cooper was aware that the myth existed among the Indians, for Natty acknowledges that ‘some of the Delawares believe this tradition’ (p. 22). In the Indian myth the Noah figure is often characterized as a hero; called by Ojibwas and the Algonquins, Nanabozho, but also know as Coyote, Inktomai, Wisukejak, or Cunawab...” From “Cooper’s The Deerslayer and the Indian Myth of Nanabozho” by Roberta F. Weldon
