Native Languages of the Americas:
Klallam Indian Legends (S'Klallam, Clallam)
This is our collection of links to Klallam folktales and traditional stories that can be read online.
We have indexed our Native American stories section
by tribe to make them easier to locate; however, variants on the same
story 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 Klallams, the traditional stories of
related tribes like the Saanich and
Squamish tribes are very similar.
Enjoy the stories! If you would like to recommend a Klallam legend for this page or think one of the ones on here
should be removed, please let us know.
