Church Matters Podcast: Bonus Track: Coyote's New Suit

2012, 15 min
Coyote’s New Suit is an Aboriginal tale about a vain Coyote – the Trickster - and his devious and mischievous helper, Raven. Together, they plot to expand Coyote’s wardrobe by stealing the coats of other creatures – including the two-legged humans. By turns humourous and insightful, Steve Heinrichs the Director of Native Ministry for Mennonite Church Canada interprets the story for listeners here.

Steve says that STORIES of Coyote and Raven can help us see Jesus in new ways – not necessarily as a trickster in the sense of this story, but as one who turned the world on its head with his radical (and mischievious) ways of being in the world, challenging cultural norms of his day.

Coyote’s New Suit is best enjoyed in the context of Church Matters Episode 64, The Church and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. We recommend listening to both. The story is written by Thomas King, novelist and broadcaster who often writes about North America's First Nations. He is an advocate for First Nations causes. King is of Cherokee and Greek descent. His story is used here with his permission.
