Stories of the Cahto Tribe
This collection of oral teaching stories is attributed to the ancestors of the Cahto Tribe. They are largely from a collection at the University of California and derived from the field work of Professor Pliny Earle Goddard in the early 1900s, with line-by-line translations provided by Bill Ray, Daatcaahaal-kwaatc’ileeh (He Who Dives for Hookbill Salmon), of the Cahto tribe. Many times these stories were told as part of a chant or in chorus, thus explaining the repetitive nature of the individual lines. As literature, these Cahto legends and stories, are more poetry than prose
