The Seal of the Navajo Nation stands for many different things. The 50 arrows of the outside ring stand for the 50 states. The rainbow, for the beauty of life. The stalks of corn, for the ceremonial system, and the staple food of life. The leaves coming off the stalk stand for the many different paths one can choose in life. They are: the night way; the mountain way; the bead way; the lightening way; the family way; and the warring way. The 4 mountains stand for the sacred mountains that mark the boundaries to the land that the Holy Ones gave the Navajo 1000's of years ago. These Mountains are: Blanca Peak in the East, Mount Taylor in the south, San Francisco Peaks in the west and Hesperus Peak in the north. The animals represent life to the people, because animal husbandry is and was a vital part of Navajo life.
