Ganado Mucho, which means “many cattle,” was born into the Tótsohnii (Big Water) Clan of the Navajo, or Diné (“the people”). His father was a Hopi captured by the Navajos. A successful cattle grower and sheepman all his adult life, he worked with other Navajo headmen such as Manuelito to keep the peace with whites. He cooperated with U.S. Indian agents to return livestock stolen from New Mexicans.
