"Coyote and the Origin of Death"


Coyote: The only one of the people at the council with any sense. He knew that no death meant no food, and he made death eternal in the closing of the door to the hut where the dead would be revived. That is why the coyote is disliked, even though he never really did anything WRONG.

Chiefs: The leaders of several tribes, who wanted death to be temporary.
