Indian Myths; Aileen O'Bryan (Transcriber).
In 1928, Aileen O'Bryan recorded the narration of Sandoval, Hastin Tlo´tsi hee (Old Man Buffalo Grass), then "first chief
of the four chiefs of the Navaho People." His nephew Sam Ahkeah acted as interpreter. This book was originally
published in 1956 as The Dîné: Origin Myths of the Navaho Indians , by the U.S. Government Printing
Office, as Bulletin 163 of the Bureau of American Ethnology of the Smithsonian Institution. As this transcription
is both authentic and poetic, I recommend it to the general reader as well as the scholar.
