"Spider Grandmother". The Spider Woman myth is common through the beliefs of the Native Americans of the American Southwest. It is believed that all life on earth, including plant, animal, and human life, was created by Spider Woman, who had been delegated that task by the gods at the very beginning of Earth's history.
The Spider Woman, sometimes referred to as The Spider Grandmother, is portrayed in Native American myth as the Mother who created all life. The woman who sits in the middle of the universe spinning her web connecting all living life to each other. She was honored in tribes such as the Navajo and the Hopi Indians.
