Na'-va-ho, from Tewa Navahú, the name referring to a large area of cultivated lands; applied to a former Tewa pueblo, and, by extension, to the Navaho, known to the Spaniards of the 17th century as Apaches de Navajo, who intruded on the Tewa domain or who lived in the vicinity, to distinguish them front other "Apache" bands.-Hewett in Am. Anthrop., VIII,193,1906.

Fray Alonso Benavides, in his Memorial of 1630, gives the earliest translation of the tribal name, in the form Nauajó, 'sementeras grandes'-'great seed-sowings', or 'great fields'.

The word Navajo derives from the Spanish word for 'people with big fields.'

The Navaho themselves do not use this name, except when trying to speak English.

All do not know it, and none of the older generation pronounce It correctly, as is a sound unknown in their language.

They call themselves Diné', which means simply 'people'.

This word, in various forms, is used as a tribal name by nearly every people of the Athapascan stock.

An important Athapascan tribe occupying a reservation of 9,503,763 acres in north east Arizona, north west New Mexico, and south east Utah.

Here they are supposed to remain, but many isolated families live beyond the reservation boundaries in all directions.

Their land has an average elevation of about 6,000 ft above sea level.

The highest point in it is Pastora peak, in the Carrizo Mountains, 9,420 ft high.

It is in arid region and not well adapted to agriculture, but it affords fair pasturage.

For this reason the Navaho have devoted their attention less to agriculture than to stock raising.

There were formerly few places on the reservation, away from the borders of the Rio San Juan, where the soil could be irrigated, but there were many spots, apparently desert, where water gathered close to the surface and where by deep planting crops of corn, beans, squashes, and melons were raised.

Within the last few years the Government has built storage reservoirs on the reservation and increased the facilities for irrigation.

It may be that under the loosely applied name Apache there is a record of the Navaho by Ońate as early as 1598, but the first to mention them by name was Zarate-Salmeron, about 1629.

They had Christian missionaries among them in the middle of the 18th century, but their teachings did not prevail against paganism.

For many years previous to the occupancy of their country by the United States they kept up an almost constant predatory war with the Pueblos and the white settlers of New Mexico, in which they were usually the victors.

When the United States took possession of New Mexico in 1849 these depredations were at their height.

The first military expedition into their country was that of Col. Alex. W. Doniphan, of the First Missouri Volunteers, in the fall of 1846.

On behalf of the United States, Doniphan made the first treaty of peace with the Navaho Nov. 22 of that year, but the peace was not lasting.

In 1849, another military force, under the command of Col. John M. Washington, penetrated the Navaho land as far as Cheldy canyon, and made another treaty of peace on Sept. 9, but this treaty was also soon broken.

To put a stop to their wars, Col. "Kit" Carson invaded their territory in 1863, killed so many of their sheep as to leave them without means of support, and took the greater part of the tribe prisoners to Ft. Sunnier at the Bosque Redondo on the Rio Pecocs, New Mexico.

Here they were kept in captivity until 1867, when they were restored to their original country and given a new supply of sheep.

Since that time they have remained at peace and greatly prospered.

There is no doubt that the Navaho have increased in number since they first became known to the United States, and are still increasing.

In 1867, while they were still prisoners and could be counted accurately, 7,300 of their were held in captivity at one time; but, owing to escapes and additional surrenders, the number varied. All were not captured by Carson.

Perhaps the must accurate census was taken in 1869, when the Government called there to receive a gift of 30,000 sheep and 2,000 goats.

The Indians were put, in a large corral and counted as they went in only a few herders were absent.

The result showed that there were somewhat fewer than 9,000, making due allowance for absentees.

According to the census of 1890, which was taken on a faulty system, the tribe numbered 17,204.

The census of 1900 places the population at more than 20,000, and in 1906 they were roughly estimated by the Indian Office to number 28,500.

The Navajo tribe is the largest in the United States, with some 200,000 people occupying the largest and area reserved for Native Americans - 17 million acres in Arizona, Utah, and New Mexico.

According to the best recorded version of their origin legend, the first or nuclear clan of the Navaho was created by the gods in Arizona or Utah about 500 years ago.

People had lived on the earth before this, but most of them had been destroyed by giants or demons.

When the myth says that the gods created the first pair of this clan, it is equivalent to saying that they knew not whence they came and had no antecedent tradition of themselves.

It is thus with many other Navaho clans.

The story gives the impression that these Indians wandered into New Mexico and Arizona in small groups, probably in single families.

In the course of time other groups joined there until, in the 17th century, they felt strong enough to go to war.

Some of the accessions were evidently of Athapascan origin, as is most of the tribe, but others were derived from different stocks, including Keresan, Shoshonean, Tanoan, Yuman, and Aryan; consequently, the Navaho are a very composite people.

A notable accession was made to their numbers, probably in the 16th century, when the Thkhapaha-dinnay joined them.

These were a people of another linguistic stock-Hodge says "doubtless Tanoan"-for they wrought a change in the Navaho language.

A later very numerous accession of several clans came from the Pacific coast; these were Athapascan.

Some of the various clans joined the Navaho willingly, others are the descendants of captives.

Hodge has shown that this Navaho origin legend, omitting a few obviously mythic elements, can be substantiated by recorded history, but he places the beginning at less than 500 years.

The Navaho are classed us belonging to the widespread Athapascan linguistic family, and a vocabulary of their language shows that the majority of their words have counterparts in dialects of Alaska, British America, and California.

The grammatical structure is like that of Athapascan tongues in general, but many words have been inherited from other sources.

The grammar is intricate and the vocabulary copious, abounding especially in local names.

The appearance of the Navaho strengthens the traditional evidence of their very composite origin.

It is impossible to describe a prevailing type; they vary in size from stalwart men of 6 feet or more to some who are diminutive in stature.

In feature they vary from the strong faces with aquiline noses and prominent chins common with the Dakota and other northern tribes to the subdued features of the Pueblos.

Their faces are a little more hirsute than those of Indians farther east.

Many have occiputs so flattened that the skulls are brachycephalic or hyperbrachycephalic, a feature resulting from the hard cradle-board on which the head rests in infancy.

According to Hrdlicka (Am. Anthrop., 339, 1900) they approach the Pueblos physically much more closely than the Apache, notwithstanding their linguistic connection with the latter.

In general their faces are intelligent and pleasing.

Hughes (Doniphan's Exped., 1846) says of them: "They are celebrated for intelligence and good order, the noblest of American aborigines."

There is nothing somber or stoic in their character.

Among themselves they are merry and jovial, much given to jest and banter.

They are very industrious, and the proudest among there scorn no remunerative labor.

They do not bear pain with the fortitude displayed among the militant tribes of the north, nor do they inflict upon themselves equal tortures.

They are, on the whole, a progressive people.

The ordinary Navaho dwelling, or hogán, is a very simple structure, although erected with much ceremony (see Mindeleff 17th Rep. B. A. 1898).

It is usually conical in form, built of sticks set on end, covered with branches, grass, and earth, and often so low that a man of ordinary stature can not stand erect in it.

One must stoop to enter the doorway, which is usually provided with a short passage or storm door.

There is no chimney; a hole in the apex lets out the smoke.

Some hogáns are rude polygonal structures of logs laid horizontally; others are partly of stone.

In summer, "lean-to" sheds and small inclosures of branches are often used for habitations.

Sweat houses are small, conical hogáns without the hole in the apex, for fires are not lighted in them; temperature is increased by means of stones heated in fires outside.

Medicine lodges, when built in localities where trees of sufficient size grow, are conical structures like the ordinary hogáns, but much larger.

When built in regions of low-sized trees, they have flat roofs.

Of late, substantial stone structures with doors, windows, and chimneys are replacing the rude hogáns.

One reason they built such houses was that custom and superstition constrained them to destroy or desert a house in which death had occurred. Such a place was called chindi-hogan, meaning 'devil-house'.

Those who now occupy good stone houses carry out the dying and let them expire outside, thus saving their dwellings, and indeed the saint, custom is sometimes practiced in connection with the hogán.

No people have greater dread of ghosts and mortuary remains.

The most important art of the Navaho is that of weaving.

They are especially celebrated for their blankets, which are in high demand among the white people on account of their beauty and utility; but they also weave belts, garters, and saddle girths-all with rude, simple looms.

Their legends declare that in the early days they knew not the art of weaving by means of a loons. The use of the loom was probably taught to theta by the Pueblo women who were incorporated into the tribe.

They dressed in skins and rude teats constructed by hand, of cedar bark and other vegetal fibers.

The few basket makers among them are said to be Ute or Paiute girls or their descendants, and these do not do much work.

What they make, though of excellent quality, is confined almost exclusively to two forms required for ceremonial purposes.

The Navaho make very little pottery, and this of a very ordinary variety, being designed merely for cooking purposes; but formerly they made a fine red ware decorated in black with characteristic designs.

They grind corn and other grains by hand on the metate.

For ceremonial purposes they still bake food in the ground and in other aboriginal ways.

For many years they have had among them silversmiths who fabricate handsome ornaments with very rude appliances, and who undoubtedly learned their art from the Mexicans, adapting it to their own environment.

Of late years many of those who have been taught in training schools have learned civilized trades and civilized methods of cooking.

Investigations conducted within the last 25 years show that the Navaho, contrary to early published beliefs, are a highly religious people having many well-defined divinities (nature gods, animal gods, and local gods), a vast mythic and legendary lore, and thousands of significant formulated songs and prayers which must be learned and repeated in the most exact manner.

They also have hundreds of musical compositions which experts have succeeded in noting and have pronounced similar to our own music.

The so called dances are ceremonies which last for 9 nights and parts of 10 days, and the medicine-men spend many years of study in learning to conduct a single one properly.

One important feature of these ceremonies is the pictures painted in dry powders on the floor of the medicine lodge. All this cult's is of doubted antiquity.

The meat revered of their many deities is a goddess named Estsánatlehi, or a 'Woman Who Changes', 'Woman Who Rejuvenates Herself', because she is said never to stay in one condition, but to grow old and become young again at will. She is probably Mother Nature, an apotheosis of the changing year.

By treaty of Canyon de Chelly, Ariz., Sept. 9, 1849, the Navaho acknowledged the sovereignty of the United States.

By treaty of Fort Sumner, New Mexico, June 1, 1868, a reservation was set apart for them in Arizona and New Mexico, and they ceded to the United States their claim to other lands. Their reservation has been modified by subsequent Executive orders.

Navajo Code Talkers in World War II

 

 

Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Peleliu, Iwo Jima: the Navajo code talkers took part in every assault the U.S. Marines conducted in the Pacific from 1942 to 1945.

They served in all six Marine divisions, Marine Raider battalions and Marine parachute units, transmitting messages by telephone and radio in their native language -- a code that the Japanese never broke.

The idea to use Navajo for secure communications came from Philip Johnston, the son of a missionary to the Navajos and one of the few non-Navajos who spoke their language fluently.

Johnston, reared on the Navajo reservation, was a World War I veteran who knew of the military's search for a code that would withstand all attempts to decipher it.

He also knew that Native American languages--notably Choctaw--had been used in World War I to encode messages.

Johnston believed Navajo answered the military requirement for an undecipherable code because Navajo is an unwritten language of extreme complexity.

Its syntax and tonal qualities, not to mention dialects, make it unintelligible to anyone without extensive exposure and training.

It has no alphabet or symbols, and is spoken only on the Navajo lands of the American Southwest.

One estimate indicates that less than 30 non-Navajos, none of them Japanese, could understand the language at the outbreak of World War II.

Early in 1942, Johnston met with Major General Clayton B. Vogel, the commanding general of Amphibious Corps, Pacific Fleet, and his staff to convince them of the Navajo language's value as code.

Johnston staged tests under simulated combat conditions, demonstrating that Navajos could encode, transmit, and decode a three-line English message in 20 seconds.

Machines of the time required 30 minutes to perform the same job.

Convinced, Vogel recommended to the Commandant of the Marine Corps that the Marines recruit 200 Navajos.

In May 1942, the first 29 Navajo recruits attended boot camp.

Then, at Camp Pendleton, Oceanside, California, this first group created the Navajo code.

They developed a dictionary and numerous words for military terms.

The dictionary and all code words had to be memorized during training.

Once a Navajo code talker completed his training, he was sent to a Marine unit deployed in the Pacific theater.

The code talkers' primary job was to talk, transmitting information on tactics and troop movements, orders and other vital battlefield communications over telephones and radios.

They also acted as messengers, and performed general Marine duties.

Praise for their skill, speed and accuracy accrued throughout the war.

At Iwo Jima, Major Howard Connor, 5th Marine Division signal officer, declared, "Were it not for the Navajos, the Marines would never have taken Iwo Jima."

Connor had six Navajo code talkers working around the clock during the first two days of the battle.

Those six sent and received over 800 messages, all without error.

The Japanese, who were skilled code breakers, remained baffled by the Navajo language.

The Japanese chief of intelligence, Lieutenant General Seizo Arisue, said that while they were able to decipher the codes used by the U.S. Army and Army Air Corps, they never cracked the code used by the Marines.

The Navajo code talkers even stymied a Navajo soldier taken prisoner at Bataan. (About 20 Navajos served in the U.S. Army in the Philippines.)

The Navajo soldier, forced to listen to the jumbled words of talker transmissions, said to a code talker after the war, "I never figured out what you guys who got me into all that trouble were saying."

In 1942, there were about 50,000 Navajo tribe members. As of 1945, about 540 Navajos served as Marines. From 375 to 420 of those trained as code talkers; the rest served in other capacities.

Navajo remained potentially valuable as code even after the war. For that reason, the code talkers, whose skill and courage saved both American lives and military engagements, only recently earned recognition from the Government and the public.

 

Dictionary

 

When a Navajo code talker received a message, what he heard was a string of seemingly unrelated Navajo words.

The code talker first had to translate each Navajo word into its English equivalent.

Then he used only the first letter of the English equivalent in spelling an English word.

Thus, the Navajo words "wol-la-chee" (ant), "be-la-sana" (apple) and "tse-nill" (axe) all stood for the letter "a."

One way to say the word "Navy" in Navajo code would be "tsah (needle) wol-la-chee (ant) ah-keh-di- glini (victor) tsah-ah-dzoh (yucca)."

Most letters had more than one Navajo word representing them.

Not all words had to be spelled out letter by letter.

The developers of the original code assigned Navajo words to represent about 450 frequently used military terms that did not exist in the Navajo language.

Several examples: "besh- lo" (iron fish) meant "submarine," "dah-he- tih-hi" (hummingbird) meant "fighter plane" and "debeh-li-zine" (black street) meant "squad."
