Coyotes Food Medicine

Project Description

Storytelling has always been a traditional way to share knowledge and wisdom. Now we have new tools to share old ways, and to take on new problems. In July 2016, Secwepemc Elders were asked to help develop a teaching story about prescription medicine, This story reflects some of the cultural teachers/animals of the Secwepemc’ulcw people.
From this conversation the story of Coyote’s Food Medicines emerged. Coyote is on a mission to collect medicines - but will everything go as planned? Often stories include the Trickster character, who can be both humorous and heroic, helping to teach through its mix of cunning, foolishness and ambition.
