Coyote Tosses the Stars Coyote Tosses the Stars is a colorful, child like collage reflecting a Native creation story: At the time of creating the Earth, the deities were carefully placing the stars in the sky with perfect order in mind. Along came Coyote and wanted to help. As the deities were resting, Coyote grabbed the bag of stars and began dancing and singing as he threw the stars into the sky. He was just about to get caught so he took the bag and heaved it into the heavens… and that is why we have the Milky Way today!
