Description

Overview:
This is a Navajo tale about a character, coyote, tricking bobcat into stealing some corn. Coyote tales are traditional Navajo stories that have been told for thousands of years, passed along from family to family across the generations. As an integral part of the oral traditions of the people, Coyote stories have been used to instruct the young and as well as for guideposts to living a good life. Folded within the humor and misadventure, the listener/reader learns that the results of Coyote's selfishness, greed, tricks, and deceit are often painful and humiliating! Through repeated telling, children learn at a young age how to behave appropriately. Please respect the cultural observances for Coyote stories, books, DVDs, and audio recordings. Coyote tales are intended for the winter story-telling season only, October through February. This lesson could be used to support lessons on Fables, Tales and Native American Storytelling.
