>When NASA was preparing for the Apollo Project, it took the
>astronauts to a Navajo reservation in Arizona for training. One
>day, a Navajo elder and his son came across the space crew walking
>among the rocks. The elder, who spoke only Navajo, asked a
>question. His son translated for the NASA people.
>"What are these guys in the big suits doing?" One of the astronauts
>said that they were practicing for a trip to the moon. When his son
>relayed this comment the Navajo elder got all excited and asked if
>it would be possible to give to the astronauts a message to deliver
>to the moon.
>Recognizing a promotional opportunity when he saw one, a NASA
>accompanying the astronauts said, "Why certainly!" and told an
>underling to get a tape recorder. The Navajo elder's comments into
>the microphone were brief. The NASA official asked the son if he
>would translate what his father had said. The son listened to the
>recording and laughed uproariously. But he refused to translate. So
>the NASA people took the tape to a nearby Navajo village and played
>it for other members of the tribe. They too laughed long and loudly
>but also refused to translate the elder's message to the moon.
>Finally, an official government translator was summoned. After he
>finally stopped laughing the translator relayed the message: "Watch
>out for these pricks. They have come to steal your land."
