Armijo was a prominent Navajo headman at the time of the Long Walk. Upon undertaking the journey he reportedly stated, “Is it American justice that we must give up everything and receive nothing?” Along with headmen Manuelito and Barboncito, Armijo and several others signed the Treaty of 1868 that allowed the Diné to return to their home in the Dinétah from their exile at Bosque Redondo.
