Additional Details:
The Navajo Indians have an elaborate nine day ceremony, the Yebashi, in which a sand painting is made daily and according to their religion each one must be destroyed before sunset, otherwise it would be a very bad omen. These are made by qualified Medicine Men in which many colors of sands are used, ground from colored rock. The "Whirling Log" sand painting is one of the very important of a group and is said to bring good fortune.
