O Mito da criação de Maidu contém a seguinte passagem, explicando como o Coiote tentou fazer pessoas, mas riram, criando, portanto, as pessoas de olhos vidrados que conhecemos como Shadow People in Gunnerkrigg Court (graças a @Brandan Long para o Gunnerkrigg ref):
When Coyote had seen the two people, he asked Earth-Initiate how he had made them. When he was told, he thought, "That is not difficult. I'll do it myself." He did just as Earth-Initiate had told him, but could not help laughing, when, early in the morning, the woman poked him in the ribs.
As a result of his failing to keep still, the people were glass-eyed. Earth- Initiate said, "I told you not to laugh," but Coyote declared he had not. This was the first lie.
