Native Languages of the Americas:
Tsetsaut Legends and Traditional Stories
This is our collection of links to Tsetsaut and traditional stories that can be read online.
We have indexed our Native American folklore 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 the Tsetsaut, the traditional stories of
related tribes like the Sekani and
Kaska are very similar.
Enjoy the stories! If you would like to recommend a Tsetsaut legend for this page or think one of the ones on here
should be removed, please let us know.
Raven is the culture hero of the Tsetsaut and other Alaskan Athabaskan tribes.
He is a revered and benevolent transformer figure who helps the people and shapes their world for them,
but at the same time, he is also a trickster character and many Raven stories have to do with
his frivolous or poorly thought out behavior getting him into trouble.
