For men they also wear jewelry, along with a shirt, pants and moccasins. Men and women with long hair wear it tied in a twisted bun with string or yarn wrapped around the middle of it. It is sometimes called a chongo, in Navajo -Tsiiyéél. It is in memory of Changing Woman and represents knowledge.. The girl at the center of a Kinaalda, a Navajo coming of age ceremony wears older traditional clothing in memory of Changing Woman (an important goddess). It is sort of like a Navajo rug with arm and head holes and a belt. Her hair is in a loose ponytail. In some ceremonies especial the one called by outsiders, Yei bichei (in Navajo: Tłʼééʼjí, Nightway), there are masked dancers in costume of nine different gods.

Hogans (hoghan in Navajo) were made of logs and earth. Today they are also made of stone and modern building materials sometimes. They always have the door to the east…. There are never any openings to the north. If someone dies inn the hogan a hole is broken in the north side to take out the body and the hogan is abandoned.They have a smokehole in the top. They always traditionally start with four poles, one for each direction. They are usually six or eight sided. Often the logs then are laid log cabin style for the walls then corbeled in to make the roof which is covered with earth for insulation. There are traditional areas and directions in the hogan where each activity is supposed to take place, ie: cooking, eating, sleeping. They are hoagns that are male and those that are female. Most one today are female. The male ones are more cone shaped. The floor should be earth or have access to the earth for religious reasons. The are traditional blessing ceremonies that are still done when a hogan is built. Most traditional religious ceremonies need to take place in part in a hogan. The first hogan is said to havve been made bby Asdzaan Nadlehe ( Changing Woman) one of the principal deities of the Navajo people.
Except for ceremonies or older traditional people, Navajo where clothes like most Americans. There is a tendency to wear western ranching type clothing, ie: boots jeans, long …sleeved shirts. They are many urban Navajo and they dress like anyone else in the US. The are 300,000 Navajo so tastes vary. If you mean "what did they wear long ago?" that depends on what era you are taking about. 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.
