Huckleberries and Coyotes: Lessons from Our More than Human Relations is a collection of stories by Yakama scholar Michelle M. Jacob. The author builds upon her previous studies of cultural revitalization and the power of Indigenous teachings by reflecting on what huckleberries, coyotes, and other more than human relations can teach us. Discussion and journaling questions after each story encourage readers to locate similar lessons in their own lives. The collection invites readers of all ages and backgrounds to listen to, learn from, and treasure their surroundings. We all have loving and generous teachers in our lives, if we are willing to pause and notice them. As a storyteller, Dr. Jacob urges us to continue the timeless Indigenous tradition of engaging with stories and one another to build connection and strength within ourselves, our communities, and our environments. On that journey, Huckleberries and Coyotes will both inspire and warm your heart.
