Indian Reading Series

Created: Sunday, June 23, 1918

Indian Reading Series
Developed by the Salish Culture Committee, Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes

Three Coyote tales—"Coyote Gets Lovesick," "Coyote and Raven," and "Coyote's Dry Meat Turns into Live Deer"—are told and illustrated by members of the Salish Indian tribe. The tribe historically lived in the mountains and plains of Montana and now makes its home on the Flathead Indian Reservation in northwestern Montana. The Salish have long taught their youth through stories, including stories about Coyote the Trickster. Illustrated with pen-and-ink drawings, and written at a fourth grade reading level, these ancient Coyote stories are now available to a new generation of children everywhere. Copublished with Salish Kootenai College Press.
