Abstract

This dissertation is concerned with cultural change among the Navaho Indians who have occupied the area around Mount Taylor and the Cebolleta Mountains in New Mexico from the sixteenth century to the present time. This group, variously called the "Canyoncito Navaho," the "Enemy Navaho," "Sandoval's Band," the "Cebolleta Navaho," and the "Mount Taylor Navaho" in the literature, will be referred to as the Canyoncito Navaho in this report. This designation, although first applied in the twentieth century, is employed, for convenience, for the whole of this people's history. Today, the name refers to the Navaho residents of the Canyoncito Navaho Indian Reservation located in parts of Bernalillo, Valencia, and Sandoval Counties, New Mexico.
