Navajo Traditions: Henio Cha’oh


Below is the brochure for the Blessing Ceremony and Dedication of the Tom & Ada Henio Cha’oh, at Cottonwood Gulch Base Camp, outside of Thoreau, McKinley County, New Mexico.

“Come and rest awhile.”

This Cha’oh shade structure is dedicated

in honor of

Tom & Ada Henio

The Henio’s met Hillis & Elizabeth Howie in 1930.

They remained friends for the rest of their lives.

Starting in 1934, Tom Henio had his hand in the design

and construction of nearly 25 buildings at Cottonwood Gulch.

Today the Henio family’s craftsmanship and spirit

are everywhere around Base Camp.

The Gulch Family thanks you!
