Kwakiutl Indian Legends (Kwakwaka'wakw) This is our collection of links to Kwakiutl folktales and traditional stories that can be read online.

We have indexed our Native American stories 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.

Kwakiutl, self-name Kwakwaka’wakw, North American Indians who traditionally lived in what is now British Columbia, Canada, along the shores of the waterways between Vancouver Island and the mainland.

Their name for themselves means “those who speak Kwakwala.” Although the name Kwakiutl is often applied to all the peoples of that group, it is the name of only one band of Kwakwaka’wakw.

Religion and expressive culture - Kwakiutl North America. Religious Beliefs. There was general recognition that most natural phenomena and all spirit beings possessed supernatural power, and the existence of such power made many activities and contacts potentially dangerous.

In the s, the Kwakiutl officially changed their name to Kwakwaka'wakw, meaning “Kwak'wala speaking tribes”, though the two names are often used interchangeably by scholars and some Kwakiutl bands.

This is a fascinating and in-depth study of all aspects of the Kwakiutl Potlatch. The history, the effects of the prohibition, the masks, the dances, and the social protocols are all given careful analysis, but not in a sterile anthropological fashion.5/5(5).

The book is illustrated with black-and-white photographs and maps. There is a short list of references at the end of the book, but no index. The book is divided into two parts, contemporary society, and society in the past, the Potlatch Period.
