Canyon de Chelly
A Little More Backstory
Conclusion
Sing Down the Moon is a
well-written book that
portrays its characters
very well, especially Bright
Morning. Her character is
so genuine that she might
as well be an actual person.
Bright Morning lives an easy life
with her family in a Navaho village
with bountiful crops. She is due to
marry Tall Boy, one of the tribe's
best warriors and hunters, which
is only because Bright Morning's
mother owns many sheep. She is in
a family of four, which used to be
five, before her older brother was
killed by the wrath of the gods she
believes in for showing too much
happiness.

The Destruction of the Village
One day, the Long Knives, enemies of the village, told White Bear, the tribe leader, that they had to leave. They nailed a sign on a tree saying this, and left. Tall Boy ripped up the sign and threw it in the river. The next day, dozens of the Long Knives came up to the village. The Navajo people fled, leaving their homes unprotected. The Long Knives then destroyed the village completely.
