The entrance through Santa Ana was guarded by Zia Tł'ógi, Ma̧'iideeshgiishniih Jemez, and Santa Ana Kinłgainiih security so it was hard to go through Tóbaajichį'í Security into the Navajo stronghold, and pathway through Taos into Navajos from the east was guarded by Taos known as Táwosniih, Picuris Bik’ǫs siih, and from the north entrances via Cortez, Colorado was guarded by Utes Nǫ́ǫ́da'i, Shoshne, Ignacio Biinooh utes, another northern entrances was also guarded by Utes plus Kanaabah and from the west security Guards by Havasupai and others Water Guards, from the south was Apaches, Zuni, Acoma, Laguna and Pueblos were stationed along on the outside of side of Rio Grande river on the outside to Guard the water WATER SECURITY, north is the same way as well as the west, Colorado rivers, water, games were protected for Navajo to live on >>>>, Pueblos and Navajos are the same people, Apaches and Navajos are the same people, Zuni and Navajos are the same people, ONE OR THE OTHERS became 'ethnic' groups >>> took on their microways internationally >> studying the origin of the names is a must to have a good appreciations

John Collier

Self-Governing Communities

The bill seeks to consolidate Indian-owned land into tribal or community ownership, while retaining individual use thereof and inheritance rights, but would prohibit sale. It provides for buying additional land, so that, eventually, all Indians desiring it will have some land for their own use. It would permit Indians to organize into self-governing communities under Federal supervision, with extension of responsibility as Indians show capacity for self-rule.

United States Treaties & the Navajos

Treaty of 1849

"When the Navajos were first created, four mountains and four rivers were pointed out to us, inside of which we should live, that was to be our country and was given to use by the First Woman of the Navajo tribe. It was told to us by our forefathers that we were never to move east of the Rio Grande or west of the San Juan River, and I think that our coming here violated the Navajo spiritual law, and has been the cause of so much death among us and our animals. Many of the men here were once very wealthy; now they have nothing. At home, we could grow corn anywhere; here the land is not productive" Barboncito refused to sign Treaty of 1849

The Navajo Roundup!

Prisoners of Wars

Carson completed his first raid by advancing north to Canyon de Chelly on August 20, 1863, from Pueblo Colorado. At Canoncito de los Trigos, he destroyed a ten acre field of corn and fed the corn from another patch to his horses. His force destroyed “large quantities of pumpkins and beans, the latter quite ripe” and carried away “all the grain not previously consumed by them [pack animals] or destroyed by the Command.”[7]

United Nation Declaration of Human Rights
