Beetles do not feature very often in Native American legends. Like other swarming insects, they are sometimes associated with disease and evil sorcery. But some beetles have more positive connotations in Native American traditions, such as the Navajo tribe, where cornbeetles are associated with fertility, and the Hopi tribe, where black beetles were said to have pioneered the first rain dance. In some South American legends, the dung beetle (or scarab beetle) was even the original creator of the Earth.
