Description: These legends are still told by the Ktunaxa or Kootenai people living in the Rocky Mountain region in Western Montana, Northern Idaho, and British Columbia. Coyote, or Skinkuc, is the main character of about half of these stories, which have been repeated since ancient times by generations of parents, grandparents, and elders.

Through these stories, Ktunaxa children have learned never to waste any part of wild game or other food. They have learned respect for all of creation and a personal regard for all life. The experiences of Coyote show how greed, crooked dealings, and boundless appetite can cause trouble. The legends tell of the humanity, the spirit of all creation.

Illustrations by tribal members appear on every page of the book, making the tales appealing to the youngest readers. Carefully written to render accurately the inner sense of meaning from one language to another, these legends offer a glimpse into the history of storytelling and a view of Ktunaxa Indian tradition.
