"The Navahos" from the series Mi oeste perdido | My Lost West by Lynn Schuette 

The Navahos (Haschogan, Tobadzischini, Haschebaad) were created from 1904 black and white photographs from The North American Indian by Edward S. Curtis. From 1890-1930, Curtis researched and documented all of the North America's Native American tribes in a twenty-volume series of writings and original photography.

Haschogan - House God, who consecrates the building and activities of the home.

Tobadzischini - Son of Water, one of the miracle-performing twins from Navaho mythology, who is the child of the God of Water and the virgin Yoikai Estan, the White-Shell Woman.

Haschebaad - Godess, in Navaho mythology, there are numerous references to female deities who are portrayed by men in various rituals.
