COYOTE’S WORLD: Imagine a world before our’s, a world rich in folklore, creatures who could transform themselves, simple ideas about living close to the earth [from the perspective of a coyote or a buffalo or a soaring eagle], then you would have an idea what this show is like!

Watch Coyote's curiosity get the better of him and accidentally make Winter happen! Enjoy the hilarity of Coyote messing up Man-Maker's creation! Travel with Jumping Mouse through adversities and discover that the gift of giving helps us to transcend all obstacles and soar into the sky, seeing the World through the eyes of another. Coyote's World is a poetic and mystical adventure into the heart and soul of North American Indian legends that will resonate in the minds and feelings of its audiences.

“Strong feelings of sadness and happiness are experienced in stories such as…
THE BUFFALO GO and my personal favourite MAN-MAKER AND COYOTE.”
