Who are the Dine and What does the word Dine mean in the Navajo language?

Dine is the name the Navajo call themselves. It means “people” in the Navajo language.

Now the largest southwestern tribe, the Navajo’s ancestors originally lived farther to the north, possibly in Canada. Starting in about 1000, they moved south, eventually settling near the Pueblo in what is now northwestern New Mexico and northeastern Arizona.

Modern Pueblo Indian potters are world-renowned. Grandmother Joy Navasie and her grandson Charlie are Hopi potters, shown here working at home.
