Pueblo Mythology - Achiyalabopa Picture

This is the Pueblo Native American deity, Achiyalabopa. This is the myth of the rainbow bird with knife like feathers that it can shoot out at amazing speed. This bird has many stories but from what I have read the main themes of this bird are that it can stop conflicts by mellowing minds, it is rather large, and it demands respect. It is also known as one of the gods of the sky ^^
There is no story saying exactly what kind of bird this is so I chose to give it a more swan-like look, for a more graceful feel.
