A colossal beaver from the tales of the Nez Perce Indians in North America. Coyote was asked by his people to attack and kill the beaver. He went with a spear and thrusted the weapon into the side of the beast. Wishpooshi tried to shake him off but Coyote held on fast. The shacking movements of the two resulted in the making of canals, rivers and chasms. Coyote then decided to flee and turn into a log. He waited until he was swallowed by the beaver and once inside its stomach, he transformed back into a coyote with a spear and stabbed the creatures in the heart.
