Sources for Navajo views on animals and nature?

I'd like to lead a discussion on what Navajos believe about how humans should treat non-human animals.
I'm having trouble finding any article or book which characterizes the Navajo viewpoint on eating meat, hunting, etc.
Such views on animals might be part of larger views on how The Navajo relate to nature in general, but I haven't found a good resource on such larger issues either.
What' I've done so far is plug in the following searches into Google Scholar:
Navajo animal morality
Navajo animal ethics
Navajo hunting ethics
Navajo environmental ethics
Navajo philosophy nature
Any recommendations on specific articles/books or different research strategies would be greatly appreciated!
