Default A funny Indian story..

And. yes, I can believe it...

Interesting story from a Navajo
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----

About 1966 or so, a NASA team doing work for the Apollo moon mission took
the astronauts near Tuba City. There the terrain of the Navajo Reservation
looks very much like the lunar surface. Among all the trucks and large
vehicles were two large figures that were dressed in full lunar spacesuits.
Nearby a Navajo sheep herder and his son were watching the strange creatures
walk about, occasionally being tended by other NASA personnel. The two
Navajo people were noticed and approached by the NASA personnel. Since the
man did not know English, his son asked for him who the strange creatures
were. The NASA people told them that they were just men that were getting
ready to go to the moon. The man became very excited and asked if he could
send a message to the moon with the astronauts.

The NASA personnel thought this was a great idea so they rustled up a tape
recorder. After the man gave them his message, they asked his son to
translate. His son would not.

Later, they tried a few more people on the reservation to translate and
every person they asked would chuckle and then refuse to translate. Finally,
with cash in hand someone translated the message,

"Watch out for these guys, they come to take your land."
