Yenaldlooshi: a skinwalker in Navajo mythology. They wear coyote skins and travel at night. They appear naked, wearing only masks and jewelry, and tend to live in caves. They also practice cannibalism and necrophilia. Yenaldlooshi are also said to be able to create a pollen from ground human infant bones that when sprinkled on sleeping Navajo families, causes sickness, social problems, and death. They are generally considered frightening, evil, dangerous, and difficult to kill.
