Grandmother Spider (also called Spider Woman) is a creator Goddess of Native American myth, especially that of the southwest. She is known across several cultures, including the Navajo, Hopi, and Zuni. She is described as an old, old, woman Who can take the form of a spider.

She (with Tawa, the Sun God) is said to have created the Earth and all its living creatures. She is a helper and guide of the people, teaching them how to spin and weave, and create pottery. I have Her here in Navajo clothing, spinning wool in the way of that people, with the spindle rolled towards the body, so that good things are brought to the spinner.
