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