A Diné (Navajo) Woman’s Indigenous Research Reading List

This is a working reading list, a (begining) record and (attempted) organization of all the material I have read in the process of  self-growth and completion of my PhD dissertation. Note: I don’t necessarily endorse everything on this list; however, I have gained valuable information from all of these resources. The list is on-going and incomplete and it will contain articles and books I am planning to read but just have not gotten to yet.
