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 related tribes like the Muskogee and Choctaw are very 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 contact us and let us know.
