Items Related to the the Navajo Bull Roarer or Groaning Stick Legend

The Bull Roarer - The descriptions governing the construction of the bull roarer (tsin di'ni, the groaning stick) are very minute in detail. It is elliptical in shape and made of pine wood riven by lightning (nidishchi bo'os'ni). Its front is mounted by eyes (bina') and a mouth of turquoise (dotlizhi), the rear by a piece of abalone shell (dichili), to serve as its pillow (bitsi'al). The whole is then covered with yucca pitch (tsazi bije), lightning struck pitch (bo'os'ni bije), and charcoal gathered from a tree struck by lightning (i'nitesh)?
