The Naja

Navajo Sterling Silver Naja PendantThe Naja has its origin with the Moors in Spain. It is a good luck charm to ward off the evil eye. It was often used on the browband of Moorish Horses. It is thought that it was handed down from the Spanish Moors to Mexico and then to the Navajo Indians. The sterling silver naja pendant shown at right was made by Navajo artist Francis Begay.

The naja is the base of many ornate squash blossom necklaces.
