We see how that divinity emerged in some areas from cults involving "animal masters" (as in the Bear Man of the Cherokee Indians), sorcerers, and shamans who embarked on spirit journeys. God sometimes appeared as the trickster - as Loki of the Norse people, Legba of Africa's Yoruba, Raven and Coyote of North America, and Krishna of India - both creative and bedeviling."@en ;
