Navajo Mythology is a system of stories and beliefs that explain how things came to be, the origin and meanings of ceremonies and symbols, and the relationships among people, animals and other beings, and places. Navajo mythology is based on the recognition that all of the stories find a place within several major eras of sacred history, a history which took place "in the beginning." Stories are passed down generation to generation orally and provide the foundation of Navajo life and thought.[1]
