Coyote Nation

This book fleshes out various aspects of the imposition of an embodied social order in New Mexico. One of the most familiar images associated with New Mexico is the howling coyote. New Mexico has a long history of coyotes who are far rangier and wilier than the reassuring tourist image would suggest. Currently, the term is used to describe the guides who—honorably or not—smuggle clients into the United States from Mexico. The book describes New Mexican Indian schools where Anglo educators sought to train students in the bodily requirements of citizenship and presents an examination of bodily comportment in ceremonies and public events in New Mexico. Thus, this survey of New Mexico offers readers a sense of the dreads and delights lurking in the wind, howling beneath the stars, and clouding the sunsets of the Land of Enchantment.
