What may be inferred about Navajo culture and beliefs?
Although this example of Navajo jokes involves animals, we cannot infer that animals always play an important role in Navajo humor.
We can infer from the passage that men and women have specific gender roles in Navajo society, but we do not know if they are patriarchal (i.e., male dominated) not.
This joke makes fun of ideas that do not make sense with Navajo cultural assumptions. Therefore, the joke reinforces, not questions, those assumptions.
The passage states that the notion of a human acting like a bird contradicts a basic idea of Navajo culture.
We know that the Navajo find concepts that contradict the natural order funny, so we can infer that their culture believes in a well-defined natural order.
