    hogan. When First Man was first created by the Creator and the Holy People (Diyin Diné 'é), he needed a home, which they all worked together to plan.

The shape of the land formation of one of the inner sacred mountains, Huerfano Mountain, links the creation myths to the origins of the round hogan. When Changing Woman was a baby, she…
