Indigenous languages Native American cultures What's new on our site today!
This page is our collection of Native South and Central American Indian 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. You may also want to visit our page of North American Indian legends, since the mythology of Mexico and the southern United States shares some similarities with the mythology of Central America and parts of South America. We may be adding more comparative pages as we go along, so check back often: this is a new section of our site.
