An excerpt from the Navajo story of how the stars came to be positioned in the sky
Before the Holy People had begun planning how the stars would be arranged, Coyote ran among the people from over the horizon, grabbed the bucksin sheet that the stars were laid upon with his teeth, and threw the stars up in the sky, scattering them in an un-organized arrangement across the sky.
The Holy People then asked, "Why have you done this?" Coyote responded, "You left me out of your decision-making."
