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.
