my recent biograffy
these are my words
eye was born a dark bird
on the 13th day of a scorpio moon in the foothills
of the ozark mountains
to my scottish irish parents dismay...
they took me in nonetheless, fed me, clothed me, sent me to schools and tried to domesticate me...
eye attempted to live a normal life... finding employment, trying to marry and even voting regularly
but failed mostly and when eye reached full dark bird adulthood
realized eye could no longer deny my coyote nature and immediately began turning over tables and rattling the cages
folks sayd eye was crazy and lots complained eye should stop
what eye was doin
(those is the folks that let you know you is doing something rite)
eye knew this was an important breakthrough and immediately started looking
for matches and kerosine
have been settin fires ever since
thank you for reading my words

The trickster deity breaks the rules of the gods or nature, sometimes maliciously (for example, Loki) but usually, albeit unintentionally, with ultimately positive effects. Often, the rule-breaking takes the form of tricks (eg. Eris) or thievery. Tricksters can be cunning or foolish or both; they are often funny even when considered sacred or performing important cultural tasks. An example of this is the sacred Heyoka, whose role is to play tricks and games and by doing so raises awareness and acts as an equalizer.

The Coyote mythos is one of the most popular among Native American cultures. Coyote is a ubiquitous being and can be categorized in many types. In creation myths, Coyote appears as the Creator himself; but he may at the same time be the messenger, the culture hero, the trickster, the fool. He has also the ability of the transformer: in some stories he is a handsome young man; in others he is an animal; yet others present him as just a power, a sacred one. According to Crow (and other Plains) tradition, Old Man Coyote impersonates the Creator, "Old Man Coyote took up a handful of mud and out of it made people". His creative power is also spread onto words, "Old Man Coyote named buffalo, deer, elk, antelopes, and bear. And all these came into being". In such myths Coyote-Creator is never mentioned as an animal; more, he can meet his animal counterpart, the coyote: they address each other as "elder brother" and "younger brother", and walk and talk together.
