"The Navajo have related the story of Changing Woman for generations. Born of the mingling of darkness and dawn, she was adopted by the First Man and First Woman. When she reached maturity four days after birth, her parents arranged a Kinaalda, a Coming of Age ceremony. The direct translation of Changing Woman's Navajo name is "Women She Becomes Time and Again," indicating the perpetual cycle celebrated at every Kinaalda." - Susan Kliewer
