Left Handed, Son of Old Man Hat: A Navajo Autobiography

2. They move to Lukachukai Mountain for the summer where his mother talks to two black bears . . . Landi lands in trouble . . . . . . He learns about the Yeibichai and what singers will do to disobedient children . . . They are always happy when visitors arrive.

ONE winter we lived on Black Mountain at Willows Coming Out. In the spring, all at once, I discovered we were moving. We moved down from the mountain to the flat, to a place called Bush Sitting Up. There we located late that spring. From there we moved across the valley to Lukachukai Mountain, to a place called Green Valleys Coming Together. Not far from there, right on top of the point, we stopped and located. We took all our stuff off the horses, and they said, "We won't move any further. This is a good place to locate."

Then Quiver's sister, Moving On, and her husband, Landi, who was of the Walk Around You Clan, came to where we camped. They were driving some sheep and goats which they put in with our bunch. After that Slim Man and his wife arrived, and not long after Slim Man's mother. He'd been raised by this woman; she was his mother's sister. She and her husband and her daughter and her son and her son-in-law came with a herd also. They felled two pine trees right close together and used that for a sheep corral. They made a partition between them, and one corral belonged to us, and the other belonged to Slim Man's outfit.
