Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Hosteen Klah was a Navajo artist and medicine man. He documented aspects of Navajo religion and related ceremonial practices. He was also a master weaver. Hosteen Klah, also spelled Hastiin Klah, was born in 1867 at Bear Mountain, near Fort Wingate, New Mexico. His name essentially means Sir Left Handed in Navajo; in his youth, he was called Ahway Eskay (Aw ashkii).

While most individuals master only one or two complete chants, Klah mastered at least more
