Another important thing to the Navajos is their land. The Navajos believe the earth is truly their mother, and that they are the children of this mother earth. They view themselves as mother earth’s children because mother earth nurses them like those who give birth nurse their children. The Navajos believe they have a responsibility to care for the land like the land cares for them. They also believe that the earth must be cared for by respect everything on the earth’s surface. They are saying that the plant and animal life must be valued and conserved.
Family is the most important thing to the Navajos in their everyday life.
