Detail of pictograph panel, Crow Canyon. Navajo people interpret this as a representation of Gháá’
ask’idii
.
His horns tie him to the Mountain Sheep People, an ancient race associated with the night chant, Tl’eejí. Generally a benevolent figure, Gháá’ ask’idii carries many kinds of seeds and foods in his feather-crowned backpack.
