Katydids do not play a prominent role in Native American folklore. Like other small animals and insects, they sometimes appear in legends to symbolize meekness and humility. Like butterflies, they occasionally are also portrayed as vain and frivolous creatures. In the Jicarilla Apache tribe, katydid chirps are associated with Indian love flutes, and katydids are used for love medicine.
