A tribe of Native Americans, the most numerous in the United States. The Navajos have reservations in the Southwest.
Note: The Navajos were forced to move by United States troops under Kit Carson in 1864. They call the march, on which many died, the Long Walk.
Note: Today, they are known for their houses, called hogans, made of logs and earth; for their work as ranchers and shepherds; and for their skill in weaving distinctive blankets and fashioning turquoise and silver jewelry.
