A water monster from the tales of the Navajo people of North America. The creature dragged two women down to the depths of his kingdom in the ocean. A man and a woman who knew the girls swam to the lair of the Tietholsodi but were followed by Coyote. At the kingdom, Coyote stole the water monster’s children. When the creature discovered the disappearance of his children he flooded the world. All the creatures were forced to flee to a higher level which is the current land mass of the Earth we live on. The flooding continued until the gods of fire and rain found the children and returned them to Tietholsodi who then stopped the flooding and receded the waters.
