"Coyote Was Walking...": Management Education in Indian Time
Verbos, Amy Klemm; Kennedy, Deanna M.; Gladstone, Joe S.
Journal of Management Education, v35 n1 p51-65 Feb 2011
The authors present a Coyote story to illustrate Native American perspectives on time, teaching, and learning. Coyote stories invoke Indian Time, a traditional Native American perception of time that progresses through events rather than minutes on a clock. Coyote, a trickster, wanders and investigates, interacting with animate creatures and inanimate objects. He inspires us to pursue creative, multidirectional approaches of understanding and reflective, self-discovered approach to learning. Whereas management and management education typically edify a single-time perspective, that of clock time, you may find wisdom in nonlinear Indian Time and reflective learning through timeless stories.
