Traditional Story

Region: Plateau

Teaching: Compromise

Through two animal characters, Grizzly Bear and Coyote, this traditional story explains why we have night and day and winter and summer. When Grizzly Bear decides to make it dark all the time, and then later, winter all the year long, Coyote, whose special job given to him by Creator was to take care of humans, is worried because he knows that light and summer are important to humans. Grizzly Bear and Coyote compromise and decide to let the days and seasons be decided by the sun and moon. The story teaches the importance not only of compromise, but also of respecting others and not letting your own needs take precedence over someone else’s.
