  • Hillerman, gave, received from Navajo Nation

    By Felicia Fonseca
    Flagstaff, Arizona (AP)

    On the Navajo Nation where tribal members sometimes hesitate to open up to outsiders, they embraced Tony Hillerman as an honest and genuine man who wanted to learn about their culture and get the details right.

    Hillerman, who passed away Oct. 25 of pulmonary failure at the age of 83, was author of the acclaimed Navajo Tribal Police mystery novels. His books in the Navajo series were characterized by vivid descriptions of Navajo rituals and of the vast reservation in the Four Corners region.
