There's a great Lakota story where Coyote and his friend Inktomi the spider give a blanket to a big rock, then take it back when it gets cold and the rock chases after them. Sort of the reverse of old Moses, apparently. Coyote gets flattened by the rock and a white rancher finds him and takes him for a rug, and he spends all night blowing on his thumb to reinflate himself.

I told that story once in a speech competition in high school and gave Coyote and Inktomi the voices of Beavis & Butt-Head. People seemed to like it.
