​THE STORY OF THE FLINT KNIFE BOYS AND THE GREAT WARRIOR OF AZTEC

Beyond Dibé nitsaah, Big Mountain Sheep is La Plata Mountains, there is a yellowish colored mountain and near it there is a mountain with shiny rocks on it, this mountain is called Disǫs. Now the man who was formed inside the first mountain is called Tsoi nadleehe, and the man who was formed in Dessos is named Łeeyaneeyąni, One Who Was Raised inside the Earth.

There is a 4-day ceremony here called K'aa' diyiní the Arrow Spirit Ceremony.​

The first man had no children. The second man had twin boys. These boys were given the names of the First Holy Twin Brothers: the elder was called Naayee' neisghąni, but the younger was called Ła' aji neeyąni, He, Who Grew in One Day, as well as that of Tó ba'ajishchį'i. Both boys grew up in one day.
