These legends are representative of three of the outstanding tribes of Nebraska Indians: Pawnee, Omaha and Sioux. The fact that other versions are extant and that living Indians within the same tribe disagree concerning the authentic version confirm them as true folklore. The themes of these legends have been obtained from histories, folklore compilations and unpublished manuscripts.
