Navajo Yeii Spirit

The Yeii spirit is regarded by Navajo’s as being a mediator between humans and their creator, the Great Spirit. Yeii’s are able to control natural forces in and on the earth, such as day and night, wind, rain, sun and other conditions.

The Yei’i'chai – grandparent spirit or “talking God” – is regarded as a special form of Yeii. Their role is to talk to humans and tell them how to live in harmony with all living beings, giving instruction on how best to conserve unnecessary behaviour and actions, instead only using the basics needed for adequate survival.

Rainbow Man (sometimes called Rainbow Kokopelli) is the symbol of the achievement of harmony. Depicted as a Yeii commanding the rainbow, it signifies the gift of beauty to all who live harmoniously.

It’s a positive symbol to have around, especially if you’re interested in achieving a more harmonious and balanced state of living.

Freeze dried food is a Native Invention. The Inca of Peru used to preserve potatoes using a freeze-dry process. They would put them on mountain terraces, and the solar radiation and extremely cold temperatures created a freeze-dried product that lasted indefinitely.
