Chief Manuelito - NAVAJO

ByLarry W Jones

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Chief Manuelito (Hastiin Chʼil Haajiní) was one of the principal headmen of the Diné Navajo people before, during and after the devastating 1864 "Long Walk" period when they were forced to walk over 300 miles across deserts from northern Arizona to the Bosque Redondo Reservation in New Mexico. Manuelito rallied his nation against the oppression of the United States military. After being relocated to Bosque Redondo, Manuelito was among the leaders who signed the 1868 treaty, ending a period of imprisonment in United States government internment camps and establishing a reservation for the Navajo. Manuelito became an advocate for western education for Navajo children, with his famous quote, “My grandchildren, education is a ladder. Tell our people to take it." This book, "Chief Manuelito - NAVAJO", traces his life through the years and events when the west was truly a wild frontier.
