First contact with the Spanish was about 1540. Styles changed over that period. After the war with the US and the pow interment for 4 years by the US army in 1868, styles changed again. The Navajo are a very adaptable people who make new ideas and technologies their own while keeping a core of Navajo-ness. The classic "Navajo style" that many are familiar with is from the 1870's onwards. Women wore hair in a bun, jewelery, tiered long colored skirts and velveteen tops. Men wore hair in the same bun or cut shorter in Pueblo style and boot, pants, hat long sleeved shirt and belt and jewelery. Earlier and some in this period they wore loose cotton clothing a little like a Mexican farmer might wear. Longer ago and at some ceremonies, women wear and wore a dress made of a Navajo blanket with a belt a bit like a poncho and tall women's moccasins. Men wore loin cloth in the summer. It is very cold on the Navajo nation in the winter so the wore pants that ended below the knee and moccasins above the ankle.
