Dine Bikeyah

Author(s): Richard F. Van Valkenburgh

Editor(s): Lucy Wilcox Adams; John C. McPhee

Year: 1941

Summary

diné bikéyah "The Navajo's Country", is primarily a guide book and gazetteer of the Navajo country and adjacent regions. While but a fraction of the Navajo place names have been listed, those given have been selected as most important and interesting to government employees, students, and travelers. Furthermore, it is hoped that diné bikéyah now using the official Indian Department system of writing the Navajo language, will make it possible to standardize and crystalize into universal spelling a number of Navajo geographical locations which are now confused by a wide variety of incorrect spellings.
