This chapter contains cultural narratives that feature anetso and the ritual transmission of cultural narratives. It includes a discussion of core cultural narratives, basic cosmology, and significant other-than-human process, and notes that the inclusion of anetso in several Cherokee cultural narratives of different genres is one facet of its cultural cachet among members of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Nation. The chapter explains that key Cherokee narratives include the ball game, either literally or as a figure of speech to indicate a contest or battle of some kind. It illustrates this embedded importance by reviewing the received scholarly classification of narratives along with explication of the Cherokee mode of oral transmission of knowledge.

Keywords:   cultural narratives, cosmology, Eastern Band, Cherokee Nation, ball game
