Copper Woman

North American - The first and only human. The tribes of the North-west tell of a woman alone in the world longing for a companion. On the instruction of a spirit, she collected her tears and fluid from her nose (and, some say, her menstrual blood) in a shell. This became a strange being, part crab part man, who put an end to Copper Woman's loneliness. At times, identified as Copper Woman, Dzelarhons, Dzelarhons, Dzerlarhons, Volcano Woman, Tlingit Neegyauks, Delarhons or Delarhons.
