For many Native American tribes, spiders were important in mythology, though typically not to represent evil. Instead, these myths usually emphasized other characteristics of the spider, such as their creative abilities and their extreme cunning. Spiders are very popular in African folklore. They are usually very tricky but they almost always end up getting caught and learning a valuable lesson. One popular spider is Anansi. The best known is a Greek myth about Arachne. She was a wonderful spinner of threads. As the myth goes, the Greek goddess Athena was very jealous of Arachne. Arachne bragged that she was a much more talented weaver than Athena, and challenged the goddess to a weaving contest. Arachne was quite arrogant and again insulted the goddess by weaving pictures that made the gods (titans) look bad. Athena became so angry that she turned Arachne into a spider and forced her to live the rest of her life weaving webs.
