Colleen O’Neill’s ​Working the Navajo Way “Labor and Culture in the twentieth century” ​is more than it seems, the contents within the analytical book examine the way there is a narrow perception of American Indians, in particular, Navajo was the central focus of this writing. The book inspects the history in which “Navajo cultural practices and values influenced what it meant to work for wages or to produce commodities for the capitalist marketplace.”(IntroL.253). O'Neill solidifies her inspection of Navajo history through the way in which the capitalist marketplace made its way onto the reservation, goals of the BIA to eradicate Navajo traditions, coal mining, wage work, and what it means to work the Navajo way
