Rabbit is a trickster in Cherokee stories. He makes wagers, he talks his way out of being eaten and he is generally an unreliable being. I've always had a soft spot for him. He is thought to be an inspiration for the Brer Rabbit stories. It's also been said that the Cherokee got him from other South Eastern traditions which may or may not be true. I can't really say as I wasn't there when we started telling about Rabbit. Cherokee Rabbit isn't the only long-eared trickster. Loki is said to have transformed himself into a black rabbit when he was doing some mischief, the Anishinabe tell stories about their own great rabbit. There are bunny tracks all over the place. -Kim Shuck
