Lore Weavers: Coyote Tales…

*

Coyote is a Native American culture hero, buffoon, and trickster figure who mixes animal and human traits to mostly comic, often catastrophic, and sometimes salutary effect.

*

The world in which Coyote moves can be conceived as a parallel to the Aboriginal Australian Dreaming and to the worlds of most other early indigenous mythological story cycles and systems including those which are native to our own shores.

*

Wherever and whenever our world is perceived as a sentient being and the pervading ontology is animistic in nature;  wondrous, perplexing, and highly imaginative, yet nonetheless, instructive tales such as these are to be found.

Long may they continue to be enjoyed…
