The Hopi Indians mentions of a Spider Woman who created all the animals and humans. On her travels she was impeded by a large iced mountain that blocked the entrance to the fourth world. She then persuaded the clans of animals break this ice block. They were all failing and one creature told Spider Woman that if the ice block melted then the world would end. The Spider Woman then stopped her thread of eternal life and transformed into an old lady. She headed south with her clan and spread evil there.
