Native American language information American Indian cultures Totem poles
Flying squirrels do not appear often in Native American folklore. When they do appear in legends, their most important feature is usually their intermediate appearance between birds and mammals, either causing Flying Squirrel to be rejected by one of these groups or enabling him to act as a spy or traitor. Flying squirrels were also associated with fertility among the Omaha and Ponca tribes.
