What to expect

Doty Meets Coyote is an audio tapestry of traditional and original Native American stories from the American West told by master storyteller Thomas Doty.

It is Thomas Doty’s work as a storyteller to not only perpetuate the Old Time myths with integrity but to add new stories to the collective basket of folklore, just as tellers before him have done for centuries. Storytelling is an ancient tradition as well as a living art. Thomas Doty’s adventures with Coyote find them journeying into the rich native culture and traditions of Doty’s ancestors.
