Summary
"Navajo history begins with stories of the past (nákéé' nááhane'), which tells of events from the time of the Emergence to the present. Most of the stories outlined here come from the beautiful ceremonial chants. They describe the ancestors of the People and explain how the Earth -Surface World changed from monster-filled chaos into the well-ordered world of today. The stories have two main purposes. First, they tell how the People, with their own special heritage, came to be, and second, they explain how the Twins won sacred power for the People--page 1
