Abstract:

"Mourning Dove, whose Indian name is Humishuma, an Okanogan Indian woman, has written these 27 stories as she heard them from the story tellers of her tribe on the Colville reservation in northeastern Washington. In most of them the central character is Coyote. They concern his adventures among the Animal People, who were before the Real People in the Pacific northwest. Coyote was an important character because he was put to work by the spirit chief to make the "world a good place in which to live" and to prepare it for the coming of the tribes"--Review in Oregonian, Portland, Oregon, Dec. 24, 1933.
