Again I am using the theme of special days and holidays (some of which you may not have heard of) .

You do NOT have to make a page about these special days just choose at least three items on the board to inspire your page. These can be objects, colors, shapes, themes, and so on.
Upload your pages to Monthly Challenges and copy them over to this thread. Please indicate which items you chose to inspire your layout. Hope you enjoy it. xxxxxx

I used the Native American theme - horse, dream catcher, and brown colors

Canyon de Chelly is a park in northeastern Arizona within the boundaries of the Navajo Nation. The name “Chelly” comes from the Navajo word “Tseyi,” which means canyon and is pronounced “da shay”. There are three major canyons that wind through the park: De Chelly, Del Muerto, and Monument canyon. Over time, the water that flows from the Chuska Mountains etched paths through the sandstone and igneous rock and created what are now massive canyons. The steep walls are over 1,000 feet high in places.

Canyon de Chelly has an intriguing and extensive history. There are over 2,700 archeological sites, dating back 5,000 years! Many indigenous peoples have lived in the area, including the Anasazi, the Hopi, and the Navajo. The earliest people lived in seasonal campsites in rock shelters, and were hunter-gatherers. As time went on, the Pueblo people learned farming techniques, and eventually began building permanent settlements. Their cliff dwellings had multi story houses with many rooms, kivas, and separate alcoves for storage. However, drought, disease, and conflict led the people to leave the canyon. The Hopi lived in the canyons seasonally from 1300 through 1600. The Navajo first entered the canyons around 400 years ago, and there are still approximately 40 Navajo families living in the canyon today during the growing season. They move to dwellings on the rim for the winter.

Travel in the Canyon is only permitted with a park ranger or a Navajo guide.

I have never been here, but have seen the wonderful cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde. We took Becky on a tour of a lot of Anasazi sites when we were studying them in our history class. It was fascinating. Love your gorgeous photos and the framing and arrangement The blended Native American and dreamcather look fabulous. A really interesting and beautifully designed page. Thank you so much for taking part in the challenge. xxxx
