Synopsis: Meet Gullible Coyote . . . Trickster and prankster, glutton and lecher, always the gullible dupe. Coyote is one of the most prominent characters in American Indian oral literature, including that of the Hopi. While the animal itself is considered a pest and associated with witchcraft, as a character in Hopi mythology he is decidedly popular, for he is much like the Hopi clown who holds a mirror up to the foibles of humans. Ekkehart Malotki here presents twelve previously unpublished tales that depict Coyote interacting with various creatures and deities. Unabridged and unexpurgated, they preserve the Hopi tradition of entertaining through storytelling and are presented as Hopi source texts side-by-side with English translations.
