I also got Kash _poya_ '(a trickster-type animal)' < your .... 'coyote' IIRC, and _ñuña_ 'sticky resin' < your .... 'pine resin'. These were from a story that involved coyote, I think, juggling his eyeballs, or something like that. It also produced the Kash word for 'juggle' _findoro_, but I think that's a priori. :-)))))
