Coyotes are found throughout North America. As predators, they help to control the environment by scavenging for food when they can't catch small animals. The coyote is a trickster in the Native American tradition. However, some tribes consider coyotes to be the embodiment of evil, and relate them to winter and death. The coyote is also related to sex, as the male coyote has a reputation as a satyr. Dreaming of a coyote is a sign that you are not creating something because of concerns about what other people might think or say. It can also relate to concerns about one's sexuality.
