Don't miss the opportunity to see the Navajo Nation's government in action as they discuss critical issues and enact legislation determining the future of the Navajo People.
Located on the grounds of the Navajo Nation Veterans Memorial in Window Rock, the governing body of 88 council delegates representing 110 chapters, or communities, throughout the reservation meets four times a year at the Navajo Nation Council Chambers as a full body. When the council is in session, many delegates carry on their tradition by speaking in Navajo, a perfect example of how the Navajo Nation is trying to forge ahead, yet still retain its time-honored cultural values. When the Council is not in session, legislative work is done by 12 standing council committees.
The circular walls of the Navajo Council Chambers are highlighted by colorful and lively murals that outline Navajo history.
Tours of the council chambers are available; please call or write to inquire.
