Synopsis

Coyote Speaks Wonders of the Native American World by Ari Berk, Carolyn Dunn

Through artefacts, stories (passed down from generation to generation) and contemporary artworks, this book explains how to look at and appreciate Native American culture. What do certain animals represent? What does a shaman do? How does the tactile world, the animal world and the Spirit world interact? What do certain symbols mean? Of the more than 500 known tribes nearly 50 are represented, from all parts of the country. This book includes an index and a glossary of tribes.
