Navajo are well known for their creation of beautiful potteries, stunning rugs designs, equisite turquoise & silver jewelry, intricate color sandpaintings, & elegant woven wedding baskets. Navajos are unrivaled in their ability to create exquisite and mult-faceted art. A new form of art is being created by modernizing tradition for a more comtemporary look. The Indian Arts/ Crafts Act-1990 protects Indian arts.
The Navajo Nation is a sovereign governmental entity, whose land base of 27,000+ sq miles spreads into Arizona, New Mexico & Utah. It's current population is at 300,000+. Originally, the population of the Navajos was decimated during their long conflict with the U.S. Government over ownership of their own land. Navajos trace their history to prehistoric times & have retained their culture & language intact.
Navajo people have had to adapt to major changes from the past into the present. Thru these changes, the Navajos have managed to retain their culture & language & is reflected in the present. Some of these symbolism can be seen in the traditional healing ceremonies held; or Spider Women teaching Navajos how to weave; the seasonal games or story telling.
