A long, long time ago monsters roamed the land and killed many people.
Spider Woman, who possessed supernatural power at the time of creation, loved the Dine (Navajo) and chose the top of Spider Rock for her home.
She gave power for Monster-Slayer and Child-Born-of-Water to search for the Sun-God who was their father. When they found him, Sun-God showed them how to destroy all the monsters on land and in the water.
Because she preserved their people, Dine (Navajo) established Spider Woman among their most important and honoured Deities.
