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 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 official 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. An official
government translator was summoned. After he finally
stopped laughing the translator relayed the message:

"Watch out for these assholes. They have come to steal
your land."
