Native American Storytime – The Unlucky Man

The Unlucky Man is a story of a man who believes he is unlucky and does not recognize the good around him in the world.


  • Listen to the story and discuss what it means to you.
  • Draw a picture of the Unlucky Man talking to the scrawny wolf in the forest clearing, the wimpy tree in a forest, the young women in the blue house, or the fisherman at the end of the world. Submit your picture through the Meigs Point “Send us your Artwork” link.
  • Turn the story into a play with a person taking the role of narrator (story teller), the unlucky man, the wolf, the tree, the young women, and the fisherman.
