Description
 
Describes how the Navajos or “Dineh” journeyed eastward from the Pacific coast to New Mexico and Arizona. They farmed in “great planted fields,” and raised livestock. Explains the Navajo way of life as it was affected first by the Utes and Pueblos, then by the Spanish settlers in the 1600s, and finally by the U.S. Army. In 1863, the Army forced the Navajos to walk 300 miles to Fort Sumner, New Mexico. Many died from exhaustion and disease, and those that survived had to farm on dry land with poor soil. In 1868, the Navajos were permitted to return to their former homeland. They developed skills as makers of jewelry, blankets, and rugs. The full-color illustrations capture the tribe’s family life, ceremonies, and nomadic existence. Reinforced library binding.
