From Under the Recording Table: A Coyote Legend

The narrator of this tale is Celina Goolsby who is A Coeur D'Alene.  She is the daughter of Ignace Garry, the last chief of her tribe. This interview was recorded in 1970, when Mrs. Goolsby was in her mid-fifties, and in this recording session she is sharing a family story involving Coyote, who is a central figure in most interior Salish Tribe legends.
