Dineh Artist, Robert Maryboy, was raised by his maternal Grandfather, Hastiin Maryboy, who lived his life in Bluff Valley.
The Artist learned to draw on flat red sandstone found in Bluff Valley. He would do this as he cared for his family's flock
The sun has gone down into the West, another season has gone by. It is time to head back to the winter camp with the
flock of sheep. Hastiin Maryboy, Grandfather, on horseback is leading. The sheep follow as the wagon leads into the dusk.
The spirit of the land is what the forefathers are talking about Yaahoot'eehgo', The harmony and beauty of the land, the
joy and happiness of the land.
Hastiin Maryboy, Grandfather spent his whole life in the valley of Bluff, Utah.
The stories of the Dineh people maintain the spiritual qualities that they find in all creation. Every mountain, valley,
river, desert and animal has a spirit. One strength of the Dineh people is thier belief that "Balance" underlies
the spiritual and physical entities of the Earth. They strive for Hozhoogo a term that has no English equivalent, but may
also include beauty, balance and harmony.
