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

This is our collection of links to Hitchiti stories and legends 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 Hitchiti, the traditional stories of related tribes like the Miccosukee and Muskogee are very similar.

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