south or noon
shah dih ah
This is the second of the four cardinal directions of the Navajo: South. (The first being ha’a’aah). Though the direction is South, the meaning of the word itself refers to the sun, where at its highest point it is generally in that direction – shá being the sun.
As such, the direction is traditionally significant because it symbolizes the beginning of order to freedom of thought and creativity — a kind of purpose or aim.
