“Coyote (Suski) is called “the trickster” in numerous cultures. Life, however, is the real trickster and Coyote understands this. By accepting situations as they are and dealing with the unexpected willingly and eagerly, Coyote survives. Coyotes show us that life is unpredictable and uncontrollable and that unexpected occurrences can be viewed as opportunities, not misfortunes. Coyote’s wisdom teaches us to live in the moment and wonder at it all.” (Keshi.com)
This fetish is especially poignant in today’s day and age when we are faced daily with such uncertainties and unpredictabilities.
Zuni carver Chassie Bowannie, daughter of the famed Abby Quam and Clayton Panteah, carved this Coyote from gleaming white alabaster with tiny turquoise eyes. His body poised to howl at the moon, this trickster will be the perfect guardian for your mantel or bedside, helping you to live and appreciate each moment as it comes, and to laugh at your mistakes.
