National Geographic : 1972 Dec
Wrapped in the dun-colored world of a blinding dust storm, a Navajo trudges homeward. Each day he must find his way between two sets of standards, those of his tribal elders and those of the white culture. He lives with a history of broken treaties, neglect, and exploitation, and must still cope with prejudice as well as unemployment. Most Navajos adjust, be lieving the world holds a balance of good and evil. But a sense of aimlessness over whelms many. Escaping prohibition at home, Nava jos frequent liquor stores that prosper beyond reservation borders. Alcoholism is a serious problem, and the tribal coun cil is establishing rehabilitation centers.
