Coyote, He/She Was Going There: Sex and Gender in Native American Trickster Stories.
Ballinger, Franchot
Studies in American Indian Literatures, v12 n4 p15-43 Win 2000
Native American trickster stories teach lessons about inappropriate social behavior or roles through satire. Frequent targets of such lessons are gender relations, expectations, and transgressions, most notably male licentiousness. Lessons concerning inappropriate female behavior may be conveyed through female trickster stories, found mainly in matrilineal societies. (Contains 54 references.) (TD)
