The Navajo Nation is the largest Indian tribe in the United States, with roughly one third living in New Mexico. The majority of the Navajo people live in Arizona, while a small population resides in southern Utah. The Navajo reservation covers more than 27,000 square miles of land throughout Utah, Arizona and New Mexico.

Window Rock, AZ, next to the Arizona/New Mexico border, is the Navajo Nation's capital.  The vast beautiful landscape of the Navajo Nation is home to many National Monuments, Tribal Parks and Historical Museums.
