Native Languages of the Americas:
Yuki Indian Legends, Myths, and Stories
This is our collection of links to Yuki folktales and traditional stories that can be read online.
We have indexed our Native American tales 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 Yukis, the traditional stories of
related tribes like the Wappo and
Pomo tribes are very similar.
Enjoy the stories! If you would like to recommend a Yuki legend for this page or think one of the ones on here
should be removed, please let us know.
The culture hero of Yuki mythology. In some Yuki stories, Coyote
