Tricksters often use their untrusting quality to prove to people they really do care for people in need. In the trickster tale, “HCSF”, it states, “The third looked more closely, and saw Coyote. But he had gone to the mountaintop on all fours, so the Being thought she saw only an ordinary coyote slinking among the trees. It is no one, it is nothing!" she cried, and the other two looked where she pointed and also saw only a grey coyote. They sat down again by their fire and paid Coyote no more attention”.
