    Let us tell you about one Pima legend. It's about a time when it rained for days and soon the rivers overflowed their banks. People went to higher ground, but not even the tallest mountain was high enough for the flood. There was a woodpecker that flew up to the sky and hung there by his bill. The flood went up to the sky, and the woodpecker's tail was underwater. He started crying. There was also a sparrow. He told the woodpecker, "Stop crying! Your tears are making matters worse." The woodpecker stopped crying and the flood went down.

    Here's an Apache legend; it is about the creation of the world. In the beginning, there was no moon, no stars, no sun, only darkness. Suddenly a skinny disc (one side yellow and one side white) appeared out of nowhere. On it there was an old man rubbing his eyes. He was the Creator. Creator created Girl-Without-Parents by putting his hands on his sweaty face, rubbing them together, and then thrusting them out. Then he sang four times (which was a magic number), and created a Sun-God and a Small-Boy. Creator asked the four gods what he should make next. He said, "This cloud is much to small," so he created Tarantula, Big Dipper, Wind, Lightning-Maker, and some western clouds in which to house Lightning-Rumbler.
    Creator sang, "Let's make earth." He sang four times. All four gods shook hands.

    Then Creator made a Hummingbird. "Fly north, south, east, and west, and report to me what you see," the Creator said.
    "All is well," the Humming bird reported.
    However, the earth was spinning around, jumping, and dancing. Creator put poles under the earth and the earth stood still. Then, the Creator sang four times, "Earth is made."

    was the Inde or Dineh.Quechan. They lived
    This is a Yuma legend. A long time ago, dogs talked. In fact, they talked too much. Whenever dogs heard a secret, they yelled it out loud. No matter what they heard or saw, they told everyone about it. The people were sick of it so they prayed to the spirits, "Please silence the dogs." The next day, an old man kicked a dog and said, "Go tell, dog," but the dog just looked at him. He told him a secret and said, "Go tell, dog," but the dog just barked twice. The old man said, "What a relief!" The Yuma people thanked the spirits for silencing the dogs.
