The Legend of Sleeping Lady

Native Alaskan Folk Tale

The story of Sleeping Lady has traveled by word of mouth throughout the region since at least the 1930's. The source of the original story is unknown. Here is the folktale retold by Ann Dixon, a librarian at the Willow Public Library in Willow, Alaska.

Ann Dixon, the author of this version of the story, has requested that I remove it from my web site. With much sadness I have complied.

As I can no longer share this story with you, I leave you with this video.
