Additional Details:
The Navajo Indian house or home is still built in aboriginal style of sticks and mud with dirt floors. From ancient custom the door always faces the east. During the summer months they move higher into the mountains and build a temporary Hogan. In case of death of any member of the family, while in the Hogan, they immediately desert it and it is known as a "Chin-dee Hogan" or haunted house.
