Molale Indian Legends and Stories (Molalla)
This is our collection of links to Molale stories and folktales that can be read online.
We have indexed our Native American myth 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 Molale, the traditional stories of
related tribes like the Klamath and
Chinook tribes are very similar.
Enjoy the stories! If you would like to recommend a Molale legend for this page or think one of the ones on here
should be removed, please let us know.
Coyote is the trickster figure of the Molale tribe. As in other Plateau Indian mythology, Molale coyote stories range
from light-hearted tales of mischief and buffoonery to more serious legends about monster-slaying and the nature of the world.
