Studies states that the Navajo tribe migrated from the north about A.D. 1025, earlier than the Apache clan. They live on the largest reservations in the US, namely Arizona, Utah, New Mexico and a small part of Colorado.

The Spanish call the Navajo people as Apache de Navajo, to differentiate them from the Apaches. They were able to acquire goats and sheep from the Spaniards, and allowed their flocks to increase rather than consume all of the meat supply.
