Transcript of The Coyote and the Buffalo

Buffalo Story By Tyson Perkins Selection and Author The selection I chose is, "The Coyote and the Buffalo" by the Okanogan which is retold by Mourning Dove. Summary Coyote was mocking Buffalo Bull's skull and Buffalo Bull came back to life to kill Coyote. Coyote give Buffalo Bull horns so he wouldn't kill Coyote. Buffalo Bull gave him a cow that will never run out of fat but Coyote broke the only promise, and that was to eat the fat, only. Literary Devices The Literary devices are:
Idioms: "In the wink of an eye"
Archetypal Characters: Like Coyote, used in many cultures Theme The theme is to explain why there is no buffalo across the river that separates present day US and Canada.
