       Additional Information  
     
      In the 1860's, countless attacks by whites nearly resulted in the annihilation of The Navajo People. One young man escaped with his grandfather -- a medicine man -- and survived to pass on their story: The Coyote Bead, a family narrative told to Bluejay DeGroat by his father. The mythic coyote beads, when united, balance the opposing energies of peace and violence, harmony and war. During the nineteenth century, the beads were separated and hidden for a time from the Navajo people. The Coyote Bead explains, from Jay's point of view, how the coyote beads were ceremonially rejoined -- the light, harmonious one with its darker, chaotic counterpart -- to return the Navajo people to a state of balance and harmony.
