Some time after the animals had been created, along came Coyote. Coyote had all the emotions and problems that humans have today. Everything that the human being was, this is what Coyote was. He was traveling one day when his brother, Fox, stopped him and told Coyote that a great monster was devouring all the animal people. Fox told Coyote that he had to save the animal people. Coyote gave it some thought and decided that maybe he would have to kill this monster. He got five flint knives all sharpened and shaped and put them in his belt. He had a little pouch, and he put soot and pitch and rope in it. Then Coyote went to look for the monster.
