Offered by The Desert Institute as part of the Old Schoolhouse Lecture Series

 

Creation myths touch on the great mysteries of origins and existence, and give rise to cultural values and meanings. When you consider the myths from another culture, you learn something about the people who treasure the myth and about your own perspective.

Come hear a couple of Chemehuevi myths about the creation of the world and a figure they call “Mythic Coyote,” an archetypal Trickster with whom we share much in common. What is the significance of “following Coyote” and how might that apply to you?
