Nearly all Pueblo populations are divided into clans.   Clan members may take turns in the conduct of the pueblo government, in the administration of justice, and in the responsibility for traditional tribal ceremonies.

Corn Clan

Hon᧨ᡨnii clan - Translates as "One Who Walks Around One."
Kachina Clan
Mountain Lion Clan
Navajo Clans - List of all navajo clans and the English meaning. Very good site.

If you are a member of the above or other Clans then we would like to hear from you.  We will publish history type articles of the clan on the site, if you send us the write-up.  Please note that each write-up should be certified as being from the clan member of the clan being written about, and that we will make attempts to verify.
