Originally published inthis sensitive translation by Washington Matthews. Navajo legends are one of the most fascinating among Native American folklore.

Navajo stories and myths are surrounded by highly mystical creatures like the skinwalkers and coyotes. These Navajo myths have been carried and passed on for generations, and there are still plenty of Navajo legends that live within the tribe, but have never been.

The Navajo skinwalker legend is one of the more complex and terrifying stories, steeped in mystery and evil intent. Many Navajos believe firmly in the existence of skinwalkers and refuse to discuss them publicly for fear of retribution.

They believe skinwalkers walk freely among the tribe and secretly transform under the cover of night. Navajo Indians -- Legends, Indians of North America -- Music Publisher Boston New York, Pub. for the American folk-lore society, by Houghton, Mifflin and company; [etc., etc.
