Klara Kelley’s (1982a) and Garrick and Roberta Bailey’s (1982) substantial ethnohistories provide us with additional understanding of Navajo economy and land use during the historic period.

For those few families remaining, agriculture was almost completely abandoned in favor of economic activities of greater mobility, including hunting and gathering, stock raising, and raiding (Powers 1985).

Brugge suggests that only a few poor Navajo families remained on Chacra Mesa, those with herds small enough to move around quickly and elude the military.

Other Navajos continued to use Chacra for hunting and gathering while residing elsewhere (Brugge 194).The 363 sites have been organized below into a typological framework based on major morphological attributes.Feature summaries of these sites are presented in .It could be something as simple as a run away script or learning how to better use E-utilities, for more efficient work such that your work does not impact the ability of other researchers to also use our site.To restore access and understand how to better interact with our site to avoid this in the future, please have your system administrator contact [email protected] overriding theme in much that has been written about the Navajo is their great cultural flexibility (Aberle 1963; Bailey and Bailey 1982; Brugge 1986; Winter 1983; York 1983).
