Looking west on 37th Parallel toward Navajo Mountain

“[Navajos] tell in their Blessing Side stories that Navajo Mountain represents the head of the female and pollen figure of Navajoland, called Tádidiln Dzil (‘Pollen Mountain’) or Ni’go ‘Asdzáán (‘Earth Woman’),” according to Laurance D. Linford, Tony Hillerman’s Navajoland. The border crosses the mountain’s southern flank.
