The Navajo Nation Veteran's Memorial Park is a blending of Din (Navajo) philosophy and U.S. military traditions, honoring the Navajo Veteran. The Veteran's Memorial Park is located beneath the monumental, naturally formed Window Rock.
The Navajo Nation dedicated this memorial park to honor its warriors of all eras of war and peace. The park was dedicated in 1995 to commemorate the men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the service of their country, their land and the Din way of life.
The memorial honors those who bravely fought and have died; those who stood ready in times of peace, and those who are still vigilant for peace and democracy.
The park has many symbolic structures: a circular path outlining the four cardinal directions, 16 angled steel pillars with the names of war veterans, and a healing sanctuary that is used for reflection and solitude that features a fountain made of sandstone. This fountain is part of a healing sanctuary that is used for solitude and reflection.
The Navajo Nation Council Chmbers are located in a round nearby that features colorful murals on the walls and depicting the history of this nation and its way of life. The Navajo Nation council delegates meet to discuss issues and enact legislation governing the Navajo Nation.
