Abstract

The purpose of this study was two-fold; first, to record Southwestern Indian folk tales from primary sources to use as supplementary reading in the social studies for the age group from eight to twelve years; second, to edit the tales in order to make them readable and meaningful for this group.

The present study contains adaptations of tales from their primary sources. The form and language of the tales varies from that which characterizes the original version only enough to improve their readability.
