Native Languages of the Americas:
Lillooet Indian Legends, Myths, and Stories
This is our collection of links to Lillooet 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
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 Lillooets, the traditional stories of
related tribes like the Shuswap and
Thompson tribes are very similar.
Enjoy the stories! If you would like to recommend a Lillooet story for this page or think one of the ones on here
should be removed, please let us know.

Coyote is foolish and boastful, and so Lillooet stories about him are often humorous in nature;
however, he is a well-meaning creature who usually acts for the good of humankind.
