Coyote Makes Man
This is a Dream Catcher
Many native American people hang a dream catcher above their bed to sift their dreams and visions.
The good is captured in the web of life and carried with the people, but the evil in their dreams drops through the hole in the center of the web and is no longer a part of their lives.
It is inspired by a story of Iktomi, the great trickster and teacher of wisdom, who appeared in the form of a spider.
Tip for Telling
I have written this story as a play/reader’s theatre script and used this format for the closing ceremony of the 2013 Penang International Kids Storytelling Festival. There were a lot of tellers!
Each teller chose an animal from their own country and a quality it represented (eg Dr Wajuppa from Thailand chose the buffalo for hard work). They also spoke in their Mother Tongue. Actions (for the animals) and some judicious rephrasing by the Narrator (me!) made it easy to follow.
