    How did the clan Kinlichii’nii came about?

  2. Sondra Butler says:

    How is the clan to which a Dine’ individual belongs decided?

  3. mel peshlakai says:

    if this project was funded by the US Government, via a grant, why is this
    content being sold? it should be released as free information.

  4. Susan Haseltine says:

    Thank you for all the work that has gone into gathering, presenting and preserving this wonderful information about the Dine’. I am leading a book discussion on Tony HIllerman’s “The Blessing Way” at the Academy of Lifelong Learning in Steubenville, Ohio. The women are a lively group of older people and are very interested in learning about all manner of things. My first career started at SW Cooperative Educational Lab in Albuquerque in the early 1970s. I realized that most of the Dine’ I met would now be adults in about 50 years old. I remember them as 4-7 year olds.
