Washington, The Capital

wah shin done

This is a Navajo word adapted from the word “Washington” that signifies the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and the US Federal Government in general.

In a more broad sense, it can also signify a capitol, as in the place of government. This is what is meant by “biwáshindoon” (it’s “Washington”).
