Native Languages of the Americas:
Seminole Legends, Myths, and Stories
This is our collection of links to Seminole folktales and traditional stories that can be read online.
We have indexed our American Indian legends 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 Seminole mythology, the traditional stories of
Southeastern tribes like the
Cherokee are often similar.
Enjoy the stories! If you would like to recommend a Seminole legend for this page or think one of the ones on here
should be removed, please let us know.
