Geomythology of Pacific Northwest Legends

Saturday, February 01, 2014, 04:00pm at the Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 2333 San Juan Avenue, Port Townsend.

Myths from the Pacific Northwest and many cultures around the world contain descriptions of phenomena or events that bear a striking resemblance to natural disasters including: floods, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, and meteorite impacts. In this presentation Dr. Jeff Tepper will examine several stories that appear to have originated with earthquakes and tsunamis. Included are legends from the Pacific Northwest that feature battles between the thunderbird and whale, a motif now recognized as a tsunami metaphor.

It is sponsored by the Jefferson Land Trust’s Geology Group and is free and open to the public. (A donation of $5 would be appreciated to defray expenses.) For more information, contact Michael Machette ( paleoseis@gmail.com ) or visit our web site at www.quimpergeology.org
