Barboncito

Barboncit[o (1820-1871) was a famous Navajo political and spiritual leader. He also was known as Hastin Dagha, Hastin Daagi ("Full-bearded Man"), Bislahalani ("the Orator"), and Hozhooji Naata ("Beautyway Chanter"). Barboncito was born into the Ma'iideeshgiizhnii (Coyote Pass) clan about 1820 and was a brother to Delgato.

He was the signer of several treaties between the United States and Navajos, including one in 1846, and was listed as Chief on the treaty of 1868 that ended the Long Walk. Of all the Navajos of his time, Barboncito is probably most responsible for the long-term success of the Navajo culture and relations with non-Navajos.
