Native Languages of the Americas:
Hualapai Legends, Myths, and Stories (Walapai)

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

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