Coyote and Five Wolves: The Native American Legend of The Creation of Ursa Major
This narrative pendant necklace tells the story of the Wasco Indian legend about the creation of the constellation Ursa Major. One day Coyote was approached by this five wolf brothers, who requested that Coyote take them up into the sky so they may go investigate two creatures they had seen. Using his ladder, Coyote took his wolf brethren into the night. Upon entering the night sky the five wolves soon realized that the two creatures they had spotted were grizzly bears and wanted to return to earth. Coyote thought his wolf brethren and the two bears looked so beautiful in the night sky that he removed his ladder and shot his magical arrows so that they would stay there forever. Coyote was so pleased by his creation he decided to create the rest of the constellations using his arrows.
