MANAGEMENT OF THE PARK
Canyon de Chelly National Monument is unique from most other national park units in that the park is located on Navajo tribal trust lands with a community of Navajo families living in the canyons. As such, administration of the park requires the National Park Service and the Navajo Nation to work together to protect and preserve the park resources.
Read the Administrative History of the Park for information about the creation of the park. For questions regarding management, please call the Park Superintendent or Deputy Superintendent at 928-674-5500.
