About 1966 or so, a NASA team doing work for the Apollo moon mission took the
astronauts near Tuba City where the terrain of the Navajo Reservation looks
very much like the Lunar surface. With all the trucks and large vehicles were
two large figures that were dressed in full Lunar spacesuits.
Near by a Navajo sheep herder and his son where watching the strange creatures
walk about, occasionally being tended by personnel. The two Navajo people
noticed and approached by the NASA personnel. Since the man did not know
English, his son asked for him what the strange creatures were and the NASA
people told them that they are just men that are 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
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
guys, they come to take your land."
