Navajo dancers Deidra Le and Caroline Chapo, who demonstrated a traditional “corn dance,” were among the many presenters during Fort Union Days, held last weekend at Fort Union National Monument.

This year’s events focused on the presence of non-Anglo people in the area, with programs focusing on the Navajo Diné and Jicarilla Apache cultures and the Buffalo Soldiers.

More photos will be published in an upcoming edition of the Optic.
