Gladys Reichard in Navaho Religion provides an excellent concordance of diyinii, including the Navajo name, a description of the deity and his or her powers, and a classification as to his or her attitude towards Earth-Surface people: whther undependable, a helper, etc. the following chart is loosely adapted from Reichard's, although I have chosen to limit specific detail because of the sensitive nature of the information:
||"Navajo fire god...in control of fire and fire making rather than fire itself." Appears black in sandpaintings.
||A symbol of peace and happiness; manifestation of Talking God; Feathers are used in many ceremonies
||Often called the only Holy Person who is 100 % good, Changing Woman is "the mystery of reproduction, of life springing from nothing, of the last hope of the world." Her gifts include rites and ceremonies, and she created the clans.
||The trickster and mischief maker, Coyote "is a symbol of force with slyness and knavery. He is a liar, spy, lascivious, and resists death. Although he inflicts harm on the world, some of his actions end in good.
||Expert flier; Eagle feathers are vital in ceremonies, Eagle Chant.
||the "most important single factor" in the existence of the Earth People. Agriculture, subsistence, rules about disposal. Identified with Changing Woman, the Earth Mother.
