Navajo Phases of the Moon
Early Childhood Special Education Technology
This is a site offers a small Navajo online dictionary that has sound bytes for some Navajo words related to childhood education, such as academic difficulty or school psychologist. It even provides terminology for words difficult to translate into Navajo, such as AIDS or parental rights. It is worth checking out!

- Navajo Gospel Hymnals
Here are a couple of my favorite Navajo Gospel Hymnals. Though many are available in those cool blue or red song-books, some of these cannot be found on either but can be heard at any Tent Revival anywhere on the reservation.
- Navajo Slang Terms
The Navajo language is a very versatile language. On this page I've included some common slang terms from the Lukachukai/Chinle area. These words vary from cellphone to being high to describing someone being cool.
- Patriotic Songs/Pledges (in Navajo)
Since I'm such a patriotic American, I've placed a copy of the Pledge of Allegiance on this site. Also, a copy of the lyrics to our National Anthem, the Star-Spangled Banner, written in Navajo is included on this page.
- Learn A Southwestern Native Language
On this page, I've collected a few phrases in different Native American dialects all across the Southwest, including Hopi, Keres, Towa, & of course Navajo. Later I'll add sound-bytes to hear correct pronounciations. For now, at least take a look & see how different a few phrases are, though these tribes all live within a close proximity of each other.
- Navajo Constellations
This page has details on the star constellations according to Navajos. Provided are the Navajo names, pictures, & the significance of each star constellation.
- Phases of the Moon
This page provides a chart on the "Phases of the Moon," since elder Navajos originally used this to measure the days, months, & seasons.
- Coyote & the Setting of the Stars
This is the Navajo story of how the Sun, the Moon, & the stars were set. It ties in the information contained in the "Phases of the Moon" & the "Navajo Constellations" web pages. Read how First Man & First Woman tried to set the stars in the sky, & how Coyote had ruined their plans.
- Skinwalkers for Dummies!
I added this page during the 2005 Halloween season. This page provides information on the topic of Skinwalkers. Specifically, it covers what most Navajos won't discuss... "What exactly is a skinwalker?" Click here if you want to learn more on this topic.
