Watch and listen to a Navajo Indian family teach their children and grandchildren about the Navajo night skies, through story and music, in a traditional Navajo Hogan (home). Learn how Coyote tossed up a blanket full of crystals, creating stars and chaos in the Universe.

According to traditional Navajo protocol, cultural stories of the Night Sky, including stories of the Sun, the Moon and the stars, can be told only during the winter months. However, at midsummer, a shorter version of the stories can be shared for educational or healing purposes, during the time of the Summer Solstice and during the two weeks following the Summer Solstice.

NAVAJO SKIES is a full-dome animated star-show featuring authentic Navajo astronomy stories told in Navajo and English, with traditional Navajo songs and Native American flute music. The show was created and recorded on the Navajo Nation.
