Etymology[edit | edit source]
Tihozhodhi is a mis-romanisation of "Tieholtsodi"; a water diety of the Navaho Native Americans.
When Coyote, the trickster god, stole his children, Tieholtsodi created a floo that covered the third world.
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.
