Be more than what you know yourself to be, here in Shiprock
The Community: Shiprock, New Mexico
The meaning of Shiprock in Navajo language is one that invokes
imagination to all to know, which in the language is Tse Bit'a'I,
which means winged rock. It refers to the legend of the great bird
that brought the Navajo from the north to their present lands, to
the Four Corners region. When you use your imagination, Shiprock
viewed from certain angles truly does resemble a large sitting bird
with folded wings; the north and south summits are the tops of the
wings for the giant creature. Witness the sculpted horizons of the
southwest, where man-made boundaries mean nothing to the rugged
lands. Here, the past is present where Hopi families still carry
water to pueblo villages perched atop high mesas. Granaries at Keet
Seel ruins in Navajo Nation Monument hold corn cobs stored seven
centuries ago. Navajo families farm centuries-old fields in Canyon
de Chelly National Monument, the site of prehistoric cliff
dwellings inhabited by the Anasazi, ancestors of today's Pueblo
Tribes. And Hopi and Navajo artisans still sell their trademark
rugs and jewelry at the Hubble Trading Post.
