Native Languages of the Americas: Chumash Legends, Myths, and Stories
This is our collection of links to Chumash 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 Chumash tribe, the traditional stories of
related tribes like the Salinan and
Seri tribes are very similar.
Enjoy the stories! If you would like to recommend a Chumash legend for this page or think one of the ones on here
should be removed, please let us know.
