Patwin traditional narratives

Patwin traditional narratives include myths, legends, tales, and oral histories preserved by the Patwin peoples of the Wintun people of the southwestern Sacramento Valley in northern California.

Patwin oral literature is most similar to that of other central Californian Native American groups. Strong external influences from other regions are not evident.
