This is our index of Arawak folktales and traditional stories that can be read online.
We have organized our Native American legends section
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. In particular, though these legends come from the Arawaks, the traditional stories of
other Caribbean tribes like the Carib and
Taino tribes are very similar.
Enjoy the stories! If you would like to recommend a Arawak legend for this page, please let us know.
