Mythological "rebirth" character

Do any of you know of a mythological character/creature symbolizing rebirth or renewal, preferably originating in North America? Something like the Egyptian/Asian phoenix (although not necessarily a bird).

My story is set in a central western US city (not Phoenix, heh) in the distant future, and I need an symbolic name for the town. I've tried Googling phoenix mythology, North American rebirth/renewal myths, Mexican/Central American myths, etc., but I get sooo many pages of results waxing poetic about the phoenix that I'm not finding anything -- I'm hoping that one of you smart people just happens to know this off the top of your head.
