The Giant Lives On Every time I read the Tlingit Legend How Mosquitoes Came To Be there are certain questions that come to mind about where the legend came from and who wrote it The legend was first published in 1883 and later found by Richard Erdoes who included it in one of his publications American Indian Myths and Legends Why is the human race so selfish to think we can be the hunter and not the hunted Although giants could be a dominant presence in our lives humans prove that they will not be over-taken Each time I read the Tlingit legend a new question would arise in my mind as to how this legend came to be and particularly who wrote it The first question I thought of was is he the only giant on the planet This was answered for me with the introduction of the giants son As I read on something seemed puzzling to me the fact that why humans are so selfish to think they are better than giants let alone anything else For instance why is it okay for humans to kill a chicken roast it and eat it and a giant is bad to kill humans eat their flesh and drink their blood11 Later in the story we learn that the giant also liked to roast the hearts of humans Another puzzling question I asked myself is if the giant was stabbed by the human and The monster screamed and Daily 2 fell down dead12 why did the giant still speak I know this is a legend or maybe just a fictionous story but if the giant is also a spirit then that would be helpful when reading the legend
