Ohlone mythology
The mythology of the Ohlone (Costanoan) Native American people of Northern California include creation myths as well as other ancient narratives that contain elements of their spiritual and philosophical belief systems, and their conception of the world order. Their myths describe supernatural anthropomorphic beings with the names of regional birds and animals, notably the eagle, the Coyote who is humanity's ancestor and a trickster spirit, and a hummingbird.
The Chochenyo (Chocheño) mythology of the San Francisco Bay Area has a strong culture hero figure named Kaknu, coyote's grandson, who is an anthropomorphic and closely resembles a peregrine falcon.

Creation myth of northern Ohlone (Coastonoan) Indians | Yet Another Unitarian Universalist, vol.1
I’m still working on stories for liberal religious kids, and I wanted a creation myth that comes from this region, the San Francisco Bay area. After some research (thank goodness for Google Books), I found a creation myth that mentions landscape features that we can see, if not from the church, at least from here in Palo Alto.

lisa b wellness: Remembering the Ohlone
Less than 250 years ago, the territory from San Francisco's Golden Gate to the Monterey Bay was the home of the Ohlone People. The Ohlone were hunter-gatherers who successfully sustained their way of life for hundreds, if not thousands of years, using only stone- age technology and the skill and intelligence of their own hands and minds.
