About five decades have passed since Etsitty Bedonie talked about the “Beginning of the Enemies.” His account about the enemies of the Navajo, as he heard it from his grandfather, was recorded with a reel-to-reel magnetic tape recorder, most likely, at Bedonie’s home in the Crownpoint area around 1969.

This determination is done among families, religious groups, fellowship lodges, motorcycle clubs and nations.  It is one of the most important elements in defining true sovereignty along with culture, jurisdiction, land and history.

We picked up the rental car and drove through the desert to the hotel and I could see the outlines of the mountains and the cacti against the starry night.
