Navajo tribes never settle in one place for long periods of time, but wander. Anthropologists believe the Navajo people probably arrived in the Southwest between 800 and 1,000 years ago after crossing the Bering Strait land bridge and traveling south. Navajo people call themselves Dine', literally meaning "The People." After arriving in the Arizona area they learned to farm and the Spanish people taught them about livestock care. After the United States defeated Mexico in 1846 and controlled the Southwest and California, the Navajos gained an enemy. Colonel Kit Carson burned Navajo fields and homes and stole or killed their livestock. Carson forced 8,000 men, women and children in the spring of 1864 marched his prisoners around 300 miles to Ft Sumner, New Mexico. Navajos called this "The Long Walk." Many died during the march or four years of imprisonment. After a treaty was signed In 1868 the Navajo returned to what is known as the 4 corners area of the US.
