More Info

In 1868, a treaty was signed between the US Government and the Navajo Tribe establishing a permanent reservation. Unlike other treaties, this treaty allowed the People to return to parts of their historical lads. Today the Navajo are the largest tribe in America with a reservation on the size of New England. The land is primarily in two states, New Mexico and Arizona, with additional land in Utah. Most of the Reservation is on the Colorado Plateau with a typical elevation of 5,ooo feet and higher. It contains deserts, that receive almost no water, to high-snow mountains of ponderosa pines. Perhaps, the land is most noted for its multi-colored sandstone formation and fifty plus monadnocks in the Navajo Volcanic Field.
