Yá'át'ééh Aak'ei! Aak'eego Hoo'ah! Today is the Autumnal Equinox which signals the first day of the fall season. The celestial stars above and sun shows us that the cold time is coming. The Yeii are now practicing for the upcoming Tłéjé Hatáał (The Nine Night Chant Ceremony), Dinétah will soon be blessed once again with the dancing and singing of our Diné Deities. This is the time when Náhasdzáán Shimá prepares to rest and certain animals prepare for hibernation, the summer ceremonies are still taking place but will soon be coming to an end for the season. Our Diné Winter stories and ceremonies are around the corner! Enjoy the last part of our harvest season, Shi Diné'é!
