The Chinle Valley Singers are a Navajo family group who believe strongly in preserving tradition through sharing their rich Navajo tradition in story-telling and in songs and dances which they have adapted from ceremonial contexts for use in Navajo social and entertainment contexts.   They began singing as a group in 1981 when they received a warm reception from communities on and off the Navajo reservation.  In 2012 they performed for audiences at the University of Shanghai in China.
