The Navajo call themselves Dineh, which means "The People” in the Navajo language. Closely related to the Apache, the Navajo are an Athapascan-speaking people who migrated southwest from the west central Canada around the 15th century.
We are reading "Sing Down the Moon" by Scott O'Dell. I teach sixth graders in South Florida. My students come from all different backgrounds and countries. I was very surprised that they knew nothing of the Native American culture. So I used your pictures to show them. Thank you so much.....
I have been studying the Navajo, "Dine" for my Intercultural Studies class. I come across your website & I wanted to say thank-you. Since I have been studying, I have been able to know a little more of my own & in touch with my own native roots, for I am Cherokee.
