This is our collection of links to
and Carrier stories and folktales that can be read online.
We have indexed 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 Carriers, the traditional stories of
related tribes like the Slavey and
Chipewyan tribes are very similar.
Enjoy the legends! If you would like to recommend a Carrier Indian story for this page or think one of the ones on here
should be removed, please let us know.
(also spelled Yutakki, Utakké, Yuttore or Yuttoere): This is the name of the great sky god of Carrier mythology.
He is a benevolent creator spirit who sometimes intervenes to help people in distress.
