The coyote felt drowsy no longer, for in the next instant he was slipping out of Iktomi's hands.

Iktomi and the Ducks: A Plains Indian Story Hardcover – August 1, by Paul Goble (Author)/5(6). The story starts out with Iktomi trying to find his horse. While looking, he starts thinking about food and eating roasted duck. He starts to gather grass in his blanket and the ducks ask him what he's doing.

He tricks the ducks into sitting around him so he could "sing them his new songs" and then he starts to beat them with his drumstick/5. What makes "Iktomi and the Ducks" particularly interesting to Goble is that while this story is told in Iktomi and the ducks book tales of Native American people from across the continent, there are two seemingly unrelated elements that almost always appear: the killing the ducks while they dance with their eyes closed and the trees rubbing together/5(6).

Iktomi and the Ducks is an excellent book for children, as well as for anyone interested in teaching stories from the Native American oral tradition.
