Blowflies (also known as bluebottle flies) do not feature very often in Native American legends. They were traditionally associated with disease in many tribes because of their tendency to buzz around filth and carcasses, and like other swarming insects, blowflies were sometimes associated with curses or other evil magic. In the Ojibwe tribe, blue-bottle flies are associated with drought and in some communities, killing flies was thought to bring back the rain. In some southwestern tribes, on the other hand, flies were credited with bringing the first fire to the people.
