Guided by the Mountains

Navajo Political Philosophy and Governance

Michael Lerma

  • The first book to present Indigenous philosophy as the foundation behind traditional and contemporary governance
  • Incorporates both visual interpretations (in the form of schema) and narrative accounts on traditional and contemporary Diné institutions of government from Diné philosophers to explain how Diné governance institutions operated during Pre-Contact and Post-Contact times
  • Advances a coherent analysis of Navajo institutions, while also providing a first-time normative account of Diné philosophy
