The hogan can be used for living, meetings and teaching. The Navajo have two styles of hogans, male and female. This hogan is a female hogan and is built by Jon and Lupita in the traditional manner. The hogan door always faces east to greet the rising of the sun.
"What a wonderful place to set up our massage tables to treat people. The inside is so beautiful and it stays cool in the heat of the day and is so warm and cozy at night."
