Combining archaeological evidence with Navajo cultural precepts, David M. Brugge has used the records of the oldest European institution in the American Southwest—the Catholic Church—to shed light on the practices, causes, and effects of Spanish, Mexican, and American occupation on the Navajo Nation in this classic book, first published by the Navajo Nation in 1968. Long out of print, Brugge’s book was the first in SAR Press’ new print-on-demand initiative intended to make such important texts available again.
