The Navajo people adapted to life in captivity in New Mexico in the second half of the nineteenth century, bringing a distinctive weaving style with them, through which was maintained both a livelihood and a way of preserving their traditional culture.
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

(A) a distinctive weaving style with them, through which was maintained both a livelihood and

"through which" modifies "distinctive weaving style". Hence they must be closer to each other but there is another modifier "with them" in between those two. Doesn't look good.
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

(B) a distinctive weaving style with them, and through which maintaining both a livelihood and

Same problem as in option A. The modifiers are distant but they must be closer to each other.
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

(C) with them a distinctive weaving style, through which they maintained both a livelihood and

All the modifiers are closer to the phrase they modify. "they" clearly refers back to Navajo people and correct use of idiom "both X and Y". Looks good.
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

(D) with them a distinctive weaving style, through which maintains both a livelihood and

Meaning error. "maintains both X and Y" Who maintains is not clear.
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

(E) with them a distinctive weaving style, and maintaining through it both a livelihood and

"maintaining through it" the verb tense doesn't sound correct.
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Hence option C
