Navajo - Evolution of the Hogan

This image depicts how Navajo hogans changed over the years. 

Maintained at the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration, this photo has the following NARA description:

The evolution of the Navajo Hogan, left to right:

  • The very old hogan.

  • A later style, a few of which are still in use.

  • The hogan of today [meaning, in the 1930s, when this photo was taken], with log walls and dirt roof.

  • Many Navajos live in modern log and stone houses, similar to the one pictured above.

Southern Navajo Agency, 1933, ca. 1930 - ca. 1938.
