Navajo Nation

About the Tribe

The people of the Navajo Nation call themselves the Diné,which means "the people". They are a nation whose origins stem from small bands of nomadic people who emerged into and adapted to their environment in the Southwest. Today the Navajo Nation covers over 27,000 square miles, extending into the states of Utah, Arizona and New Mexico. Diné Bikéyah, which means “Navajoland,” is larger than ten of the fifty states in America.
