Johano-ai, the Navajo sun god, begins his day in the east and rides one of his five horses across the sky to his post in the west while dragging his shining, golden orb—the sun. As his horse gallops across the sky, gorgeous hides and ornately woven blankets, known as naskan, lie beneath its hooves. This blanket derives its mountain pattern and name from these sacred Navajo blankets.
