Summary

The Navajos originally moved to the Southwest sometime between A.D. 800 and 1400. Today, their reservation, the biggest in the United States, spreads across large portions of Arizona, Utah, and New Mexico. Once hunter-gatherers, the Navajos learned farming, herding, and weaving from their Pueblo Indian neighbors. At times, the Navajos allied with the Spanish, sometimes against them, though the Spanish never conquered the Navajos. When the United States acquired New Mexico and Arizona territories, settlers poured into Navajo country. As the Navajos resisted these incursions, the U.S. government decided to destroy their homeland and send them to prison camp. Upon release, the tribe began to rebuild its homeland and its sheep flocks.
