This song, Yeha Noha by Sacred Spirit, is one that greatly touches my heart and soul. Many of you ask for a translation. This is what I can give you;

The song was sung by the late Navajo elder Kee Chee Jake from Chinle, Arizona. The song is a remixed version of a portion of the Navajo Shoe Game song (a part of the origin myth describing a game played among the day and night animals in which the animals who discovered in which shoe a yucca ball was hidden would win a permanent state of daylight or night.) The song describes the Giant's (Yé'iitsoh) lament at the owl's attempt to cheat by stealing the ball.

The audible portions of the song say:

... shaa ninánóh'aah (you give it back to me)
... Yé'iitsoh jinínáá léi' (... The Giant says again & again...)
... ninánóh'aah (...give it back)
