Coyote, The Trickster: The Dance from Chaos to Order
Every indigenous culture has stories or folklore regarding “The Trickster”. To the Native Americans the Trickster is known as Coyote, in Native Europeans cultures he is called Lugh, Loki by the Norseman, even royalty had court jesters.
The Trickster will present alternate perspectives often through shock, manipulation or sometimes (if we are lucky) humor. Their purpose? To shake loose the bonds of complacency, inertia or even fear. Coyote introduces the element of the unknown, challenging the laws and boundaries of a system. This element of chaos is necessary to prevent stagnation and degradation.
