[Coyote Tales. English Version.]
Albert, Roy; And Others
Hopi storytellers told, in Hopi, 20 stories for this supplementary reading series. Each story was translated into English, graded (1.1 to 3.8), and illustrated. These stories normally serve to entertain as well as to instruct both children and adults during the winter nights. Several of the stories have Coyote as the central character. He typifies the clever, mischievous one who, through his scheming, often overreaches himself and becomes the butt of his own joke. The Hopi stories, unlike European ones, almost never spell out the moral but leave it implicit, to be drawn out as the hearer recalls or ponders a tale. A related document (RC 005 039) contains the same stories printed in the Hopi language. (LS)
