Hogan is the Navaho name for a tent; two tents are Naki-hogan or Atl-sa-hogan. This game was taught to Dr. Haddon, in 1901, by the two old Navahos in Chicago. (Haddon, 5, p. 221, pl. xv, Fig. 1.) An example of the finished pattern is preserved in the Philadelphia Free Museum of Science and Arts; No. 22723, collected by Mr. Culin, from the Navahos at St. Michael's Mission, Arizona.
"Two Hogans" is interesting because the loops are held by the teeth almost throughout the entire figure. It is not unusual for one or more loops to be taken up by the teeth, but, as a rule, it is done merely through one or two movements, in order to bring the strings into a position from which they can be conveniently taken up by the fingers. The figure produced by the Sixth movement is similar to the finished figure of the "Leashing of Lochiel's Dogs"; the loops, however, being held on the wrists and little fingers instead of on the middle fingers and little fingers.
