Native Languages of the Americas:
Toltec Indian Legends and Myths

This is our collection of links to Toltec folktales and traditional stories that can be read online. We have indexed our Indian mythology 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 Toltec mythology, the traditional stories of related tribes like the Aztecs are very similar.

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