Navajo Nation Council Chamber, Window Rock, AZ
This significant building illustrates the New Deal revolution in Federal Indian policy during the 1930s that advocated reconstitution of tribal organization, restoration of tribal land base, and promotion of traditional Indian culture. The building continues to serve as the seat of government for the Navajo Nation, the largest Indian tribe with the largest reservation in the United States. It includes important murals and other artwork depicting the Navajo Nation's history.
