Native American Lore

Like the Greeks and Romans, Native American tribes also told stories about the stars in the sky. Theirs are perhaps less well-known, but are just as interesting to hear.

For those of us in the United States, the stories may feel a bit more personal since they contain characters (like Coyote) and landmarks (such as Devil’s Tower) that we know. Below are links to a few star stories from Native American traditions. Many of the sites contain several other stories if you want to learn more!
