Abstract/Summary

In the beginning of the world Spirit Chief called all the animal people to his lodge.  The animals are told that before the sun rises each will be given a new name. The first to get there will be allowed to choose any name he wants.  The talk made the animal people very excited.  Each wanted a proud name and to be ruler of some tribe.  Of all the animals Sin-ka-lip the Coyote hated his name the most and was willing to do anything to get there first even if it meant staying up all night.
