Additional Image Information
Canyon de Chelly – 1904
Canyon de Chelly (pronounced “de chay”, after the Navaho “Ta Shay”) was one of the most sacred places for the Navaho and remains so to this day. It is located in Northeastern Arizona in the heart of Navaho country. Of Curtis’ 50,000 negatives this is considered to be one of his ten most important and powerful. The insignificance of man relative to nature is clearly illustrated through the sheer size of enduring cliff formations (over 1,000 feet high) that surround the riders.
