The Navajos simply call themselves “Diné”–The People. They represent the largest American Indian group in the country. The reservation covers over 27,000 square miles of colorful, diverse topography expanding into the states of Arizona, Utah and New Mexico. Window Rock on the Arizona/New Mexico border, off US-666 northwest of Gallup, is the Navajo capital. The Navajos are noted for their beautiful silver and turquoise jewelry, sand paintings and skillfully crafted woven rugs–recognized worldwide as works of art. Most New Mexican Navajos reside in the northwest section of the state. Other groups include Navajos at Tohajiilee, west of Albuquerque; the Alamo Navajos and Magdalena Navajos, west of Socorro; and the Ramah Navajos in western New Mexico. New Mexico Navajos are justly proud of the Navajo Rug Auctions, the Eastern Navajo Fair at Crownpoint and the Shiprock Navajo Fair.
