Native Languages of the Americas: Modoc Indian Legends
This is our collection of links to Modoc folktales and traditional stories that can be read online.
We have indexed our Indian 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 Modocs, the traditional stories of
related tribes like the Yakima and
Nez Perce tribes are very similar.
Enjoy the stories! If you would like to recommend a Modoc legend for this page or think one of the ones on here
should be removed, please contact us and let us know.
