A collection of 60 different Navaho sand-paintings designs was assembled between 1906-1918 by the late Mrs Louisa Wade Wetherill of Kayenta. It is one of three major collections of such reproductions actually made by Navahos, and the only one from the Marsh Pass-Mounument Valley region. In this bulletin, Wyman has collated information from Mrs Wetherill's notes and other sources of data on each Navaho chant or ceremonial involving sand paintings.
