My people's creation story have us emerging from a cave in the Black Hills. My Dine friends' ancestors climbed a reed into this world.

Now you can choose to look at this with western "rational" eyes and call these allusions to a trip across some fabled land bridge. You can choose to assail these stories; just as many in the dominant culture have done to their own creation stories, hallowing them out and denouncing those who still believe.

Or you can remember that stories have power. Words can create and call a thing, for good or ill, to us.
