Native Languages of the Americas:
Havasupai Legends, Myths, and Stories

This is our collection of links to Havasupai legends and traditional stories that can be read online. We have indexed our American Indian lore 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 Havasupai, the traditional stories of related tribes like the Hualapai and Yavapai are very similar.

Enjoy the stories! If you would like to recommend a Havasupai legend for this page or think one of the ones on here should be removed, please contact us and let us know.
