Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This brief article is a discussion of the relationship between aboriginal ideas about mythology and religion and how they are integrated with Christian ideas. Kemu'kemps, the Klamath culture hero, essentially a trickster figure similar to Coyote, is frequently associated with the Christian God. However, many feel he is more similar to Satan. Hence there is a confusion about the relationship, but some kind of syncretism is common.
