For the Navajo people, the new year begins in October, when summer meets winter. The Navajo Year, Walk Through Many Seasons follows the Navajo calendar, and provides poetic descriptions of the many sights, sounds, and activities associated with each month.
In November, there are string games and stories; in April, planting of corn, beans, and squash; and in July, rodeos and monsoon rains.
Follow Coyote through the year, and explore how the Navajos observe the rites and passages of each month.
