Native people have had ties to land in North America since time immemorial, and now that connection is expanding to the cosmos.

he Perseverance rover has been on Mars for a month, collecting data and making discoveries with each passing day.

A number of the findings, through a collaboration with NASA, have been catalogued in Diné Bizaad, the Navajo language.

The Perseverance team started with a list of 50 words and will expand the list as needed. According to a tweet from the rover itself, some terms have already been used, such as tsé łichíí (red rock), yéigo (diligence) and séítah (amongst the sand).

Before landing in the Jezero Crater on Máaz, Navajo for Mars, the Perseverance team divided the crater into a grid of "quadrangles" that were 1 square mile (2.6 square kilometers) in size and named the "quads" after national parks on Earth with similar geology.

The rover touched down in an area named after Arizona's Canyon de Chelly National Monument, which is in the Navajo Nation.

NASA honors Native Americans and a Mars Rover Perseverance team member by naming Mars features with Navajo names.
