And see similar accounts by natives from the same time period as "native myth"...
Sorry about all the strange questions, I'm watching Monster Quest... lol! But this is one of those things that drive me nuts! What do you think?

I think because explores are thought of scientists and "Native Myths" were often stories used to explain, educate and entertain their population. Since we don't always understand which type of story it was its difficult to know how true it is. It might be a metaphor, instead of an actual account.
We understand the language of European explores much better so we have a better idea of what are written as actual observation and what is not. It depends how far back you go also the more ancient the culture the harder it is for us to fully understand the ideas they are describing in their own language.

Do you watch Destination Truth as well? Did you see the one last night where he might have caught evidence of the Israeli mermaid on camera?
