"According To Coyote" Presented At Paynesville This Saturday, 7:30 PM!

The Mixed Blood Theatre will present “According To Coyote” at the Paynesville High School Auditorium Saturday, Oct. 29, 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. The performance is sponsored by the Paynesville Public Library and all ages are invited to attend.

    An anthology of tales featuring the legendary hero of American Indian lore, According To Coyote is also an unforgettable encounter with the richness, vitality, and sensibilities of Native culture. Playwright John Kauffman gloriously employs age-old techniques of music, dance, magic, and narrative to bring to life this brave/foolish/sneaky/wise character in all his guises: Coyote the Creator, the namer of animals and bringer of fire; Coyote the Trickster, conniving for an advantage that usually backfires on him; and Coyote the Teacher, from whom lessons of humility, wisdom, and humanity are learned.
