Coyote and Son Marker

Coyote and Son Marker

Back to Landmarks

IThrough the stories, Coyote taught the people many lessons and left markers on the land to remind them of the lessons. On the banks of South Thompson River on the Neskonlith reserve are two rocks, one large and one small, which are Coyote and his son transformed into rocks. Coyote and his son were watching naked girls across the river swimming and had wicked thoughts about them. They were changed into rocks and are still there today. When one sees the rocks, he thinks of Coyote and is reminded to behave properly.
