Bedtime Buckaroos: “Coyote and the Bear: A Pawnee Story”

Posted on November 16, 2020 by Seth "from Marketing" Spillman in

Join us Monday evenings as we spark imaginations by hosting virtual bedtime stories with “Bedtime Buckaroos,” presented Paycom.

Story time plays a vital role in introducing children to the magic of books. Each week we’ll feature a new engaging Western story read by local authors, community leaders, traditional storytellers and Museum staff.

This story comes from an anthology of Pawnee Mythology where the character of the coyote is often one of a trickster.
