In the mythology of the Iroquois, the colors of the Indian Summer have a special meaning. The yellow leaves symbolize the fires of the spirits, while the red leaves are soaked in the blood of the bear, slain by the celestial hunters. However, such stories were told by the indigenous population only in winter. The summer was reserved for work. And whoever broke this law was punished by the
invisible nature spirits Jo-ga-oh.
Colors also have their symbolism here.
