Achomawi Myths

Dixon Roland B.

Achomawi Myths, Roland B. Dixon, 1909

ACHOMAWI MYTHS

COLLECTED BY JEREMIAH CURTIN; EDITED BY ROLAND B. DIXON

Journal of American Folk-Lore, Vol. XXII, No. 85, pp. 283-7 [1909]

 

This article include myths of the Achomawi, who lived in the north-eastern Sierra Nevada of California.

These myths were collected by Jeremiah Curtin for the Bureau of American Ethnology. They were placed in my hands by the Editor for preparation for insertion in this Journal; and in so doing, I have made no changes other than to give the English names for the various characters, and to add a word or two here and there, where the original manuscript was obscure or imperfect because of hasty copying. One myth has been omitted from the series, as it is only a brief version of the Loon-Woman myth already published in this journal, vol. xxi, p. 165. – R. B. DIXON.
