Is that not a bit of generalization HK? Native tradition?

Coyote stories are common to many tribes--did you want me to post a list? More importantly, Coyote belongs to all the people, he is a part of Native tradition that transcends this or that tribal identity. Coyote stories come from all over the continent, but they all describe the same being. Not all tribes deal with Coyote or even recognize him, but where they do, Coyote is Coyote. He is a part of the land, Clovis, no one owns him, he is no one's "unique tradition." The Indians that I know, are not possessive of their deities the way Judeo-Christians tend to be (operative word there: tend). Nothing wrong with generalizing when you're, y'know, making a general statement. :tu:

So if there was One True God all I would have to do to make others not believe is invent a bunch of other gods?

I think there is One True God ----- 'he' just doesn't follow any religion or belief nor belongs to one. oh people can claim so ......... like kids fighting over a toy.

Or if there was a bunch of gods that people once believed to be true, inventing one more would make it more true?
