- Coyote tales are part of the Paiute oral tradition used to teach proper behavior and values from an early age. These stories are only told during the winter time. The Coyote illustrates the mischievous nature in all of us. This lesson helps students compare and contrast characters in the story, Coyote and the Geese. Students are asked to reflect on how characters respond to challenges and events by filling out a worksheet and engaging in discussions about the book. Students also learn more about Native American storytelling and its importance in Native cultures. The background information with resources listed helps each teacher become more familiar with the Paiute Indian Tribe of Utah (PITU) and their perspective on petroglyphs, pictographs and how long the Paiute people have lived in Southern Utah.
