North American - A water-god of the Navaho Indians. He lived in the third world inhabited by the Navaho and, when Coyote stole his children, he created a flood. To escape the rising waters, the tribe and all the animals climbed up a reed into the fourth world. When the flood rose into this fourth world, Coyote released the captive children and the flood subsided. Also commonly referred to as Tieholtsodi.
