 A mischievous Coyote, silly Koshare, Father Sky, and Mother Earth dance and sing to the beat of Southwestern Native American Indian drums. These stories of communication focus on the importance of being true to yourself and thinking of others. Masks, direct manipulation mouth puppets, and Kachinas will delight all in this wonderful performance.
