Tubatulabal Indian Legends
This is our collection of links to Tubatulabal folktales and traditional stories that can be read online.
We have indexed our Indian story 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 the Tubatulabal, the traditional stories of
related tribes like the Shoshone and
Kawaiisu tribes are very similar.
Enjoy the stories! If you would like to recommend a Tubatulabal legend for this page or think one of the ones on here
should be removed, please let us know.
Coyote is the culture hero of the Tubatulabal tribe. As in other tribes of California and the Great Basin,
Tubatulabal coyote stories range from light-hearted tales of mischief and buffoonery to more serious legends
about the nature of the world.
