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.

Important Lillooet Mythological Figures

Coyote: The trickster hero of the Lillooet and other Interior Salish tribes. 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.
