What is a Coyote Folk Tale or Myth? — Preceding unsigned comment added by CatherineMunro (talkcontribs) 21:28, 28 October 2005


I'm removing the sentence "He is often called Mika". That would only be the name in one language of many spoken by people with Coyote legends. Also, the only the language that I can find a reference to Mika in is Ponca, in which it appears to mean raccoon. 17:23, 18 April 2006 (UTC)

Moved COYOTE[edit]

Moved the reference to "COYOTE" ("Call Off Your Old Tired Ethics") under the Popular Culture heading. Mfryc 23:29, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

New Coyote Image needed[edit]

The image of the animal coyote is not really representative of this article. There should be some image of Coyote as the mythological/cultural figure, but I could not anything in Wikimedia Commons. Does anyone have a more appropropriate image? 00:53, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

By culture[edit]

The links provided in the 'By culture' section generally do not address the role of Coyote in those cultures at all. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:56, 6 October 2007 (UTC)

Judgemental Language[edit]

I think the use of the language in the statement that "White settlers may have known, but been too timid to recirculate these stories..." is very judgemental. You might as well say they had better taste than to retell the more risque stories. The comment applies modern sensibilities in a judgemental manner to historical situations, (something that's bugging me more and more on Wikipedia lately, no offense...) ``` —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:05, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Coyote in mythologyCoyote (mythology) – Consistency with other disambiguated deities, like Jupiter (mythology). The proposed title already redirects here. pbp 18:13, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Support. User:Maunus ·ʍaunus·snunɐw· 18:38, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Support "Coyotes in mythology" would be an appropriate title if the article also mentioned the role of coyotes in mythologies where they're not necessarily deified (like in the deer article). Here that isn't the case. Cobblet (talk) 22:45, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
The article is not about coyotes, the animals, but about the North American culture hero Coyote. That is why we need the title as proposed.User:Maunus ·ʍaunus·snunɐw· 02:35, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Both titles imply a different article, though it does appear that the content better suits the proposed title. "Coyote in mythology" implies an overview of myths including coyotes, similar to what we have at Deer in mythology. The proposed title implies a discreet mythological figure, Coyote. Though the article describes the mythology of several cultures, it does seem a sort of stock character, or at least a shared deity, e.g., Apollo. It's conceivable that these could be separate articles at some point, but for now, I think it's fine to have this title redirect to Coyote (mythology). --BDD (talk) 21:30, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
COyote is a single mythological figure shared by many North American peoples.User:Maunus ·ʍaunus·snunɐw· 02:35, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Support the move as the current title is too close to Coyotes in mythology. - WPGA2345 - 21:36, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Support. The new title will correctly identify Coyote as the proper name for a mythological figure. Gizza (t)(c) 12:19, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
