Native Languages of the Americas:
Ohlone Indian Legends, Myths and Stories
This is our collection of links to Ohlone 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 Ohlones, the traditional stories of
related tribes like the Miwok and
Pomo tribes are very similar.
Enjoy the stories! If you would like to recommend an Ohlone story for this page or think one of the ones on here
should be removed, please let us know.
The culture hero of Ohlone mythology. In some tales, Coyote
