Navajo: Tradition & Change in the Southwest
Wolfgang Linding (a.) & Helga Teiwes (photo.). Chronicles the historical, cultural & societal progress of the largest group of Native Americans. The Navajo forged an ethnic identity centered on their skill at animal husbandry in areas thought largely uninhabitable. Remaining always linked to the land, they generated a rich cultural inventory, combining complex ceremonial systems, deeply resonant artforms & strong familial ties. However, the Navajo have faced major struggles, enduring hostile treatment at the hands of Spanish explorers, Anglo settlers & other local Indian groups. Also relates the fight to revitalize Navajo culture in the shadow of the assimilating Amer. lifestyle that surrounds them, coinciding with the push towards a politically autonomous Navajo Nation. More than 150 photos.
