TSOHANOAI

Navajo Sun God

God who carries the sun on his back

He crosses the sky every day lugging the sun on his back. When he gets home, he hangs it on a peg where it remains until it’s time for the next morning’s commute.

He was the absent father of twin War Gods Nayenezgani and Tobadzistsini, to whom he eventually gave magic arrows to defeat the demons.
