Coyote and Sirius
One evening Coyote sat on a hill watching the stars rise. He noticed a very bright and twinkling star.
He thought to himself, “How beautiful that star is, I think I will try to get a better look.”
So off he went to a higher hill for a better look. Each night he climbed higher, and each night he
came closer, until one night he could see the star so clearly, that he realized it was a beautiful
woman. He could see her dancing with her sparkling clothing swaying
as she moved. He fell in love.
The next night he stood on the high, high hill, as the Star Girl rose he grabbed her hand and rose
with her into the sky. They danced and dance, but never spoke. Coyote had a really good time. Then
it started to get cold. It got colder and colder. Coyote realized he was freezing to death. He tried
to pull away from his new love, but she would not let go. He realized that the Star Girl was staring
into the distant sky and totally unaware of his presence and worse, she did not love him!
He pulled and he screamed. He howled and he kicked. He yipped and he struggled. Finally, with all
of his might he threw himself into the night sky and fell to earth.
Today it is possible to see the tremendous hole he left when he hit the earth , called Crater Lake,
located in Oregon. It is also possible at night to hear all of Coyote dependents howling in the night
telling of their lost love, the Star Girl, Sirius.
