    Shiprock Navajo Fair

    The Oldest and Most Traditional of the Navajo Fairs

    During the fall in Navajo Land, the Navajo people of the Four Corners come to celebrate the year's harvest with a community celebration.

    The Shiprock Navajo Fair offers a variety of events including arts and crafts, exhibits of horticulture, science, agriculture and livestock. The Miss Northern Navajo competition, a baby contest, concerts to comedians, song and dance competitions. Food concessionaires, a carnival and of course the SNF Parade through the main street of Shiprock.

    The Shiprock Navajo Fair is held to coincide with the conclusion of an ancient Navajo healing ceremony. The Night Way, a nine-day chant is commonly called "Ye'ii'-Bi-Chei". This is a very complex and detailed ritual and usually is held after the first frost. The public is welcome to view parts of the ceremony during the fair.

                    by Ahoalo
                    So, I have just moved to Indiana from Texas for college. Unfortunately that means my powwow is back home, and as it happens during the school year, I can’t go.
