Description:

Navajo life centers around thinking and reasoning in accordance with traditional teachings, but traditional Navajo thought is based on a very different set of understandings and assumptions about the physical and spiritual world than that of societies' dominant Anglo culture.Dinéj' Na'nitinis an introduction to traditional Navajo teachings for a non-Navajo audience.In addition, the book considers the impact the loss of these teachings is having in contemporary Navajo culture. A mix of both historical and modern examples of cultural change have shifted traditional views and practices give cause for younger generations--both Navajo and non-Navaho--to reflect upon what has been lost as well as what is now available.This intimate look at Navajo values and customs will appeal not only to students and scholars of Native American studies, ethnic studies, and anthropology, but to any reader interested in Navajo culture or vanishing traditional lifeways.
