We’d like to show the side of the world you don’t normally see on television.


The BlessingWay

In the beautiful language of the Diné, “Hózhó jí” means “The Blessingway”. There are a multitude of chants that the People use for a variety of functions, but the most common and universal chant ritual sung over a person or location is the Hózhó jí... the call for blessings, the call “for good hope”.

The Blessingway is the most esteemed of Navajo practices (taking precedent over all of the other chants) because it was given to the People shortly after their emergence into the realm of the Earth Surface People. It contains the most complete account of the Navajo origin myth, including the origin of the ceremony itself.
