Three Navajos BY MAHONRI YOUNG
ARIZONA HAS, outside of Oklahoma, the largest Indian population in the United States.
Of the forty-five thousand redskins in the state, a large percentage are Navajos,
a seminomadic tribe of the great Athapascan stock that stretches
from the region of Hudson Bay to the state of Chihuahua, in northern Mexico.
The Navajos are herders, weavers, and picturesque scenic accessories –
mainly the latter to the tourists who scour their once-happy hunting grounds in streamlined cars.

But Mahonri Young knows the Indians as human beings.
After all, he has been studying them for a quarter of a century and more.
Three Navajos is a handsome, atmospheric etching, extraordinary in
its sympathetic treatment of the Indian women and painstakingly
accurate in its rendering of the difficult Arizona terrain.
