A Giant from the traditions of the Hopi Native Americans. Yeitso was an ancient being who preyed on humans. His body was covered in scales and caused much devastation on the primordial human race. The heroes Nayenygami and Tobadzistsini asked the sun god for help to defeat the Yeitso. The sun god gave them the magic arrows of the rainbow, the sunbeam, of chained lightning and of sheet. They returned to Earth and used their magic arrows to bring down the terrible Yeitso.
