DESTRUCTION OF GREAT CENTIPEDES / Jaad łaniitsoh
"After breakfast the next morning, he started out to kill the Sildilhushytso / Great Centipedes /, and they told him that they lived at a place called Tsehnegleen / Tó aheeh dlįįniih /Water Meeting Place/ on the La Plata River near Farmington where two river meets Navajo Dam place".
"So he went there and found a lot of centipedes who, as they walked, bowed themselves up in the middle, and then could spring a great distance to catch their victims. The largest centipede jumped at Nayenezgani but could not bite through the stone armor, and Naayee'neiszgh2ni seized his stone knife, and cut him into little pieces, and then killed all the rest of them and their little ones except a pair, a male and a female, and these he let go, telling them to behave themselves and never harm anyone. He scalped the largest centipede and went home, where he hung the scalp on the scalp stick, and they held the usual celebration."

Contact with Africa - Clyde Winters
"Based primarily on the appearance of the colossal heads (and the claims of others before him), David Childress, asserts in his book that the Olmecs were, or at least had contact with, black Africans. A theory much like that of Ivan Van Sertima and Clyde Winters. In fact, Van Sertima was pretty much the first to take this theory and run with it. Childress though, starts off his book attacking mainstream archaeologists (ad hominem) for not believing “obvious evidence” of African contact because it disagrees with their preconceptions. Childress doesn’t realize that in dismissing the findings of archaeologists, because mainstream archaeology doesn’t support his theories, he’s done the same thing – that is dismiss obvious evidence.
As mentioned before, the origin for most of Childress’ theories about contact with Africa is the late Ivan Van Sertima, who was most famous for his views claiming that Africans were the basis for all of the world’s civilizations and especially the view that the Olmecs had contact with them. In his view, Africans made a number of journeys to the Americas long before Columbus. To his credit, he was in charge of African Studies at Rutgers, however his views of Africans in Central America and such were never taken very seriously among actual Mesoamerican scholars. It seems that he was probably the pioneer of this theory and probably the loudest voice in the argument for African contact with the Olmecs".

THE FIRST WORLD
"These stories were told to Sandoval, Hastiin Tł'oh tse'iih, by his grandmother, Asdząąh Hashkehii. Her ancestor was Asdząąh at a', the medicine woman who had the Calendar Stone in her keeping. Here are the stories of the Four Worlds that had no sun, and of the Fifth, the world we live in, which some call the Changeable World.
"The First World, Ni'hodiłhił was black as black wool. It had four corners, and over these appeared four clouds. These four clouds contained within themselves the elements of the First World. They were in color, black, white, blue, and yellow.
The Black Cloud represented the Female Being or Substance. For as a child sleeps when being nursed, so life slept in the darkness of the Female Being. The White Cloud represented the Male Being or Substance. He was the Dawn, the Light-Which-Awakens, of the First World.
In the East, at the place where the Black Cloud and the White Cloud met, First Man, Ałtse hastiin was formed; and with him was formed the white corn, perfect in shape, with kernels covering the whole ear. Doohanǫǫt'iniih is the name of this first seed corn, and it is also the name of the place where the Black Cloud and the White Cloud met.
[1. Informant's note: Five names were given to this First World in Its relation to First man. It was called Dark Earth, Ni'hodiłhił; Red Earth, Ni'hałchii'; One Speech, Saad t'aała'i; Floating Land, Ni'danaa' eeł; and One Tree, De east'da eith.
Matthews (1897, p. 65): The First World was red. Franciscan Fathers (1912, p. 140): ni' the world or earth; Ni'hodiłhił, the dark or lowest of the underworlds; (p. 111) łaa'iih, one, or first. Franciscan Fathers (1910, p. 81): saad, a word, a language; Saad ła'i, First Speech.
2. Franciscan Fathers (1912, p. 93): Ałtse hastiin, First Man.
3. Informant's note: Where much corn is raised one or two ears are found perfect. These are always kept for seed corn.
Franciscan Fathers (1912, p. 85): Doohanǫǫt'iniih, the name of a full ear, or seed corn.]
The First World was small in size, a floating island in mist or water. On it there grew one tree, a pine tree, which was later brought to the present world for firewood.
Man was not, however, in his present form. The conception was of a male and a female being who were to become man and woman. The creatures of the First World are thought of as the Mist People; they had no definite form, but were to change to men, beasts, birds, and reptiles of this world.
Now on the western side of the First World, in a place that later was to become the Land of Sunset, there appeared the Blue Cloud, and opposite it there appeared the Yellow Cloud. Where they came together First Woman was formed, and with her the yellow corn. This ear of corn was also perfect. With First Woman there came the white shell and the turquoise and the yucca.
First Man stood on the eastern side of the First World. He represented the Dawn and was the Life Giver. First Woman stood opposite in the West. She represented Darkness and Death.
First Man burned a crystal for a fire. The crystal belonged to the male and was the symbol of the mind and of clear seeing. When First Man burned it, it was the mind's awakening. First Woman burned her turquoise for a fire. They saw each other's lights in the distance. When the Black Cloud and the White Cloud rose higher in the sky First Map. set out to find the turquoise light. He went twice without success, and again a third time; then he broke a forked branch from his tree, and, looking through the fork, he marked the place where the light burned. And the fourth time he walked to it and found smoke coming from a home.
"Here is the home I could not find," First Man said.
First Woman answered: "Oh, it is you. I saw you walking around and I wondered why you did not come."
Again the same thing happened when the Blue Cloud and the Yellow Cloud rose higher in the sky. First Woman saw a light and she went out to find it. Three times she was unsuccessful, but the fourth time she saw the smoke and she found the home of First Man.
"I wondered what this thing could be," she said.
"I saw you walking and I wondered why you did not come to me," First Man answered."

5. Informant's note: Five names were given also to the First World in Its relation to First Woman: White Bead Standing, Yoołgai naaziįni; Turquoise Standing, Dootł'i'zhii'naazįhi; White Bead Floating Place, Yoołgai'danaa' eeł; Turquoise Floating Place, Dootł'i'zhiih dana'eełi; and Yucca Standing, Taławosh yaagai. Yucca represents cleanliness and things ceremonial.
Franciscan Fathers (1912, p. 181): Tse'eełzi' nitteełi, Yucca baccata, wide leaf yucca or Spanish bayonet. The roots of this species furnish a rich lather; the plant is frequently referred to as Talawosh, soap.]"
