This is for the people who are interested in learning about what the Navajo tribe is like nowadays, compared to how they emerged and grew in the past. There is a lot of material discussed throughout the article about the struggles the tribe had to face, and how overcoming such struggles allowed them to grow into one of the top largest Native American tribes in the United States today.
