- According to Goshute tradition, Coyote tales should only be told during the winter time. Please use this lesson and story in the winter months. This lesson utilizes the Confederated Tribes of the Goshute (CTGR) tale, “Coyote and Frog Race” to decode common words with suffixes. The students will also be introduced to why eagle feathers are significant in Native cultures and its similarity to present day ways of honoring those who accomplish great things. Students will also participate in cooperative activities to build teamwork in the classroom.Native peoples tell stories about Coyote and other animals to their children. Based on Coyote’s mistakes, the elders teach children about proper behavior and positive attitudes. The lessons taught help children to avoid making the same mistakes as Coyote and suffering the consequences in their own lives.
