After Marjorie’s husband dies, Bernie brings her gifts, and she lets him into her home. They quickly become good friends, despite the age difference between the two.

    pairing can any entity be complete.” (Reichard 1950, 29). Thus, the traditional Navajo housing structure, a hogan (hooghan), emphasizes this core idea, since the belief is that all natural things have both a male and female aspect for balance. Accordingly, this sense of balance is symbolized in the function and construction of both aspects of the hogan. The hogan’s male aspect is the conical, fork-stick hogan (alchi adeeza), whilst the round hogan (hooghan nimazi) is considered the female…
