Coyote and the Stars

An American Indian Legend - Nation Unknown

Coyote is just being Coyote when he sees the Creator placing the stars in the sky from a bag in a very orderly manner. Coyote asks if he can help and the Creator lets Coyote place stars in the sky reminding him to be sure and put the stars up in an orderly manner. Coyote does it correctly, but, as is his nature, Coyote becomes impatient and throws the whole bag of stars into the sky distributing the stars helter skelter.

The Creator scolds him for his carelessness and for the mess he made. Coyote leaves with his tail between his legs. Soon, however, Coyote goes back to being a Coyote, only after that he howls at night when he sees the mess he made with the stars.
