Sacred Blanca Peak
Blanca Peak is obscured by clouds along the top of the range while Twin Peaks, Ellingwood Point, and Little Bear Peak are visible in the low cloud cover. Blanca Peak is revered by the First Nations Diné (Navajo) as a sacred mountain and is called ~ Tsisnaasjiní ~ which has two meanings; “Dawn” and “White Shell Mountain“.
The mountain is considered to be the eastern boundary of the Dinetah, the traditional Navajo homeland. It is associated with the color white, and tribal traditions say it is “Covered in Daylight and Dawn and Fastened to the Ground with Lightning!”.
