Native Languages of the Americas:
Sarcee Legends, Myths, and Stories

This is our collection of links to Sarcee folktales and stories that can be read online. We have indexed our Indian myths 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 Sarcee, the mythology of neighboring tribes like the Dene and Stoney are very similar.

Enjoy the stories! If you would like to recommend a Sarcee legend for this page or think one of the ones on here should be removed, please let us know.

Sarcee Mythological Figures

Old Man (Xalitsa or Halitsa in Sarcee, sometimes also known as Halitsa-tsinna or Chutigha): Creator and culture hero of Sarcee mythology. Old Man is a benign character who does many good deeds for the people, but unlike the creator gods of most other Athabaskan tribes, he is also a trickster figure who features in many humorous stories in which he behaves in undignified and unwise ways.
