"Yee naaldlooshii", or skinwalkers, are a part of Navajo folklore that is very tied in to their relationship with their cultural values, as they symbolize several things that are antithetical to said values. They do NOT like non-Navajo talking about this stuff or reducing it to just werewolves with the serial numbers filed off.
It's mostly the name that's the issue.
Yes essentially. As Grankless mentioned they are not an inherently supernatural creature, but rather human magic users who's magic transgresses cultural practices and is largely an inversion of the way that magic is typically used in traditional Navajo belief.
