Eels do not play a very important role in Native American mythology, featuring most often as a food item. Eel are sometimes used as clan animals in some Native American cultures, however. Tribes with Eel Clans include the Cayuga, Onondaga, and Tuscarora. There is also a subclan of the Mohegan Turtle Clan called the Yellow Eel Clan.
