Coyote with a thorn in his eye

A Costanoan (Ohlone) Legend

Coyote came to some women and asked them to pull out a thorn from his eye. There was only a little stick which he held in place with his eyelid. At first they distrusted him. He selected the most beautiful; "You draw it out," he sang. When she was about to take it with her fingers, he said: "No, take hold of it with your teeth." He said this so that he might seize her. When she took hold of the little stick he seized her and ran off with her. His song:

Meneya don kac op ka yapunnin, you (?) me pull-out my thorn!
