History of the Navajo

The Navajo people, otherwise known as the Dine, which means "The People", are located in mainly Arizona but also spans into Utah and New Mexico. The Navajo Reservation is roughly six million acres. The date that the Navajo arrived in the southwest may be as early as 1000 or a little later, it's unknown exactly when they arrived. Navajo Native Americans are very family oriented people who believe heavily in traditions and ceremonies. They are also very famously known for being sheep herders. Their way of life is very sacred to them and they continue their traditions through generations to keep the Navajo culture alive and prosperous.
