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.
