The Playful & Fun-loving Atse'hashke'
On a recent adventure to Navajo lands this past spring, I was fortunate to have some encounters with Coyotes, known as Atse'hashke' to the Navajo. Those who have the Coyote medicine spirit totem in their lives have much to learn, but we must be willing and open to receiving these messages.
Coyote is playful and fun loving and is usually found to the South on the Medicine Wheel. Coyote reminds us to bring the happy childlike quality into our adult lives. This reminder of Coyote’s playfulness was evidenced by myself and my guides, as we watched this Coyote jump up in the air for no apparent purpose, except for the fun of it, and then continue on the previous path across the desert terrain.
