Coyote, who resides in Englewood, turned 74 on Saturday.

While at college, Coyote ingested peyote and had a hallucination in which he saw his footprints as coyote paw-prints. A few years later, he came across Coyote's Journal, a poetry magazine, and thought the logo looked liked the paw prints he saw while on peyote. After confiding to a shaman, he decided to change his name.
