The Navajo Tribe
Navajo means “take from field”
The Navajo tribe lived in Southern Utah. They lived in a hogan. It is a domed-shape house supported by wood frames and clay on the outside. The door always faced the East.
They ate a lot of squash, corn, and beans. They also hunted animals like deer and prairie dogs. They always ate fresh food.
They weaved rugs with a pretty design. That is one way they are super popular because of their art. There is more! They also made pottery with crazy designs. Some look like a picture!
Did you know the Navajo tribe is one of the largest tribes in America? I think that’s crazy! Also, they lived in Colorado, Mexico, and Arizona.
Their clothing is very colorful. They also made very colorful jewelry. The Navajo made really big rugs made of buffalo hide. I bet their rugs were really cool.
