Navajo Coyote Woman Legend - Twin Rocks Trading Post


He’s the ubiquitous trickster and cultural hero of Native American mythology, the thorn in RAVEN’s side, the first American Idiot, the original Marx Brother and spiritual leader of all Roadrunner-chasing Looney Tunes.

Responsible for many things, including the Milky Way (see BLACK-GOD ) and the diversity of mankind (see HUMAN-MAKER ), there are more stories about him than stars in the sky. He ought to have his own website.

For example, did you hear the one about the Spying Moon? It seems that someone had pinched the moon, and COYOTE offered to stand in as replacement. Everyone agreed that he made a fine moon, but from his elevated position COYOTE could see everything that was going on.

Being of an irritating disposition, he couldn’t resist blowing the whistle on friends and enemies alike. "Hey, look what BADGER is doing behind his tepee!" Pretty soon everyone was sick of his snooping and voted him out of the sky.

But nothing can keep COYOTE down for long. Being a boastful old show-off, he loves to impress the girls by juggling his eyeballs. One day he threw one so high it got stuck in the sky and became the star Arcturus. So even now he’s keeping an eye on us all.

Years ago, a man from the Dakota nation married a girl from the Arikara nation. After they had one child, the man brought another wife to their home. The first wife pouted because she was jealous. When time came for their people to break camp, she refused to move from her place. After their tent was taken down, she sat there, on the ground, with her baby on her back. Her husband and the rest of their people moved on.

At noon, her husband stopped the line of people and said to his two brothers, "Go back to your sister-in-law. Tell her to come on. We will wait for you here. But hurry! I fear that she may become desperate and kill herself."

The two rode off and arrived at their last camping place in the evening. The woman still sat on the ground. The elder brother said to her, "Sister-in-law, we have come to get you. The camp is waiting for you. Get up and join us."

The two brothers lashed their ponies and rode back to camp. They told their story, but no one believed them. "She has killed herself," said her husband, "and my brothers will not tell me."

The whole village broke camp and returned to the place where they had left the woman. There she sat, a block of stone in the form of a woman. Her husband's people were very excited. They chose a handsome pony, made a new travois and placed the stone in its carrying net. Pony and travois were beautifully painted and then decorated with streamers of various colors. The stone was considered holy and was given a place of honor in the centre of camp.

Whenever the people moved and made a new camp, the stone and travois were taken with them. For years the stone woman traveled with that group. It stands today in front of the Standing Rock Indian Agency in North Dakota. Legend has been edited from historical documents and is believed to be in the public domain.

It seems like at least 3 times a week somebody will come up to me and ask, “How did all of this (Coyote Ugly) get started?” The birth and development of Coyote Ugly spans more years than I care to count, but here are the events from Coyote’s rough beginnings to where we are today. This is my story.

After my high school graduation, I was bound for NYU. Unfortunately, without the nuns, I was a little more distracted in my college years. Instead, the next person who would help shape me was my pool hustling boss of Trevis Italian restaurant, a local joint at which I was thankfully employed. He taught me the ins and outs of pool and I ended up teaching him how to make money in the bar business. Even though I was only 17 years old and a waitress, it seemed like I had a natural instinct for making money.
