Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A one-of-a-kind compilation of beliefs, stories, and cultural artifacts from Native American tribes.

 

Coyote Speaks explains how to look at and appreciate Native American culture. For thousands of years, tribal ways and wisdom have been passed down in story, song, dance, and art from elder to child, from tribe to tribe, and from Native peoples to the world at large. This book gathers many of these beliefs and traditions, enabling the outsider to appreciate the vast and diverse world of the First People. Among the subjects addressed are: the meanings of certain animals and symbols, what shamans and medicine people do, and how the natural world, the animal world, and the spirit world interact. Of the more than five hundred known tribes, nearly fifty are represented, from all regions of North America.

 

The book is profusely illustrated with paintings, artifacts, and photographs and includes a glossary of tribes and an index.
