Description: Written or cowritten by American Indians to reflect the Indian point of view, this series covers the cultural history of the diverse tribes that comprise the Indian Nations of North America. Each book opens with a folk tale, legend, or creation story that sets the scene, each title includes information on the origins of the tribe, its way of life, key historical events, religions or spiritual life and traditions, family life, contemporary life, and the future envisioned for a specific Indian nation.

This book provides children with an overview of the many-faceted lives of the Navajo. The text begins with the Navajo creation story passed on from generation to generation, and continues with the historical background (including the Long Walk), clothing, arts and crafts, religion, language, family life, government, and contemporary life of the tribe. Noteworthy Navajo contributions include the work of the Code Talkers during World War II and intricately handcrafted jewelry and patterned rugs. A recipe for a typical Navajo dish and a traditional prayer appear in the backmatter.
