Navajo Indians, numbering about 20,000, constitute the largest group of Indians belonging to the Athapaskan, or Dene stock. Other groups of the same stock are the Apaches (Nde), Lipanes (Lipa Nde), Hupas of California, and various Dene tribe inhabiting British Columbia and Alaska (see DeNeS). This points to a migration of the Navajo, centuries ago, from the extreme north. They themselves have a vague tradition of the "Dine Nahodoni", i.e., "other Navajos", living far away. According to their myths they emerged from lower worlds somewhere in the San Juan Mountains in south-west Colorado. At present they occupy an extensive reservation in the north-east corner of Arizona and the north-west corner of New Mexico; but many of them live beyond its borders, especially towards the south. Formerly their habitat extended somewhat farther to the north-east. (Quote from wikipedia.org)

About the Author

John William Lloyd (1857 - 1940)
John William Lloyd (J. William Lloyd) (June 4, 1857 - 1940) was an American individualist anarchist. Lloyd was born in New Jersey, and later moved to Grahamville, Florida. He based his individualist anarchism upon natural law, rather than on egoism as Benjamin Tucker did; this was a source of conflict amidst otherwise friendly relations between Tucker and himself. Lloyd later modified his position to minarchism. (Quote from (Quote from (Quote from wikipedia.org)))
