North American - A Pueblo creator-goddess. Daughter of Utc'tsiti. Sister of Ia'tiku. She and her sister were born and, for many years lived, underground until, instructed by the spirit Tsitctinako, they emerged on to the surface and set about creating plants and animals, spirits and gods. Nao'tsiti was impregnated by the rainbow and bore twin boys. She gave one, Tiamuni, to Ia'tiku and, taking the other with her, moved away to the east. These children were the progenitors of the tribe. Occasionally known as Nao'tsiti, Nautsiti or Nautsiti.
