Old-Man-Coyote creates the world
In the beginning of the world, the Earth was covered in water. But living beings did exist. They dwelled high above the rainbow. There was a great pushing and shoving, and the animal said: It’s too crowded for us here, we need more space.
After everything had been created, after the Earth had become solid and lights had appeared in the sky, the Coyote convened a meeting to discuss the creation of humans. The animals came together in a forest clearing…
Native American myths tell the beginnings of the world in a language of striking imageries. Children and adults alike ask many questions about the origins of life.
“Old Man Coyote” is a humorous tale about the creation of the world.
