This page is our collection of Native American folktales and traditional stories that can be read online. We have indexed these stories tribe by tribe to make them easier to locate; however, variants on the same legend are often told by American Indians from different tribes, especially if those tribes are kinfolk or neighbors to each other. As well as our collections of tribal legends and legend archives, we also have three pages of comparative legends, first for the stories of the Wabanaki tribes (including the Micmac, Maliseet, Passamaquoddy, Penobscot, and Abenaki tribes,) second for the stories of the Iroquois tribes (including the Mohawk, Seneca, Oneida, Onondaga, and Cayuga tribes,) and third for the stories of the Anishinabe tribes (including the Chippewa, Ottawa, Algonquin, and Potawatomi tribes.) Since this page features primarily the myths and legends of North American Indian tribes, we have also begun a separate collection of Central and South American Indian legends which may be interesting for purposes of comparison.
Note that since many children use this site, we have tried to avoid linking to any legends or stories which deal explicitly with sex or contain bad language, including slur words for Native Americans. However, like the folklore of any culture -- including European fairy tales -- there is often violence and bad behavior in American Indian folklore, so please use discretion about sharing them with younger children.
