Navajo Mythology is a system of beliefs that is enormously rich and expressive as well as complex with many tales. Navajo mythology is based on the recognition that all of the stories find a place within several major eras of sacred history, a history which took place "in the beginning." Stories are passed down generation to generation orally and provide the foundation of Navajo life and thought.
