"When the Moon Fell . . . Coyote Was There Helping"

At one time the sun wouldn't leave the sky, and the moon seemed to have fallen, everything stood still, plants didn't grow, the night people stayed hidden from the hot sun and were getting hungry. The day people couldn't be protected by the night to rest. The great mother water didn't move back and forth.

Coyote with his special powers stayed in the sky for a long time. Pawing, he put the sun moving again and raised the moon into the night sky.
