Abstract:

Focusing on the members of one extended Navajo family, Jeanne Simonelli describes the small moments of their daily lives; shearing goats, baking bread, attending a solemn healing ceremony, washing clothes at the local laundromat, playing traditional games and contemporary sports, talking about the history of the Dine - the Navajo people - and pondering the changes they have witnessed in the canyon and the difficulties they confront. The author also examines the past and present roles of anthropologists and archaeologists in Navajo country and reflects on how her time at Canyon de Chelly has affected her own life.
