Shiprock, New Mexico
Known today most commonly by the name Shiprock, the 1700 foot eroded volcanic plume is sacred to Navajo as the Rock with Wings.
This name comes from an ancient folk myth that tells how the rock was once a great bird that transported the ancestral people of the Navajo to their land in what is now northwestern New Mexico.

Canyon de Chelly National Monument offers
visitors the opportunity to learn about
Southwestern Indian history from the earliest
Anaszai basketmakers to the Navajo Indians
who live and farm here today. Its primary
attractions are ruins of Indian villages built
between 350 and 1300 A.D. at the base of
sheer red cliffs and canyon wall caves.
