Abstract

The early-eighteenth-century Navajo occupation of Dinétah in northwestern New Mexico has been the subject of research for almost one hundred years. Dinétah Navajos built a plethora of structure types, including forked-pole hogans, sweat-lodges, and masonry pueblitos. Using data from an intensive survey and tree-ring sampling project around McKean Pueblito and data from other block surveys, this research expands on the efforts to delineate aspects of Early Navajo social organization in a small portion of Dinétah.
