      "Yeha-Noha (Wishes of Happiness and Prosperity)" is a song recorded in 1994 by the German musical project known under the name of Sacred Spirit. It was the first single from the album Chants and Dances of the Native Americans. Released in 1994, it achieved a great success in various countries, including France, where it topped the singles chart. It was sung by Navajo elder Kee Chee Jake from Chinle, Arizona. The song is a remixed version of a portion of the Navajo Shoe Game song (a part of the origin myth describing a game played among the day animals and night animals in which the animals who discovered in which shoe a yucca ball was hidden would win a permanent state of daylight or night.) The song describes the Giant's (Yé'iitsoh) lament at the owl's attempt to cheat by stealing the ball. The audible portions of the song say:

      ... shaa ninánóh'aah (you give it back to me)

      ... Yé'iitsoh jinínáá léi' (... The Giant says again and again...)

      ... ninánóh'aah (...give it back)
