Navajo sand painting
The Navaho life is particularly rich in ceremony and ritual, second only to some of the Pueblo groups.Note is made of nine of their great nine-day ceremonies for the treatment of ills, mental and physical.There are also many less important ceremonies occupying four days, two days, and one day in their performance.In these ceremonies many dry-paintings, or “sand altars,” are made, depicting the characters and incidents of myths.
