• Farming in the canyon

    Canyon De Chelly

    National Monument Arizona

A Place Like No Other...

For nearly 5,000 years, people have lived in these canyons - longer than anyone has lived uninterrupted anywhere on the Colorado Plateau. Their homes and images tell us their stories. Today, Navajo families make their homes, raise livestock, and farm the lands in the canyon. The National Park Service and Navajo Nation actively work together to manage park resources.
