North American - A Hopi monster in the form of a huge eagle. This monster carried off young women to his nest and killed them. One of those taken was the wife of Son of Light who, with the help of Spider Woman, a mole and several birds, reached Man-Eagle's lair and saved his wife by beating the monster in several contests of magic. In the final test, Man-Eagle was burned to ashes but Spider Woman restored him to life in the form of a young man who promised to mend his ways. Known as Man-Eagle.
