Navajo Nation Council Chambers
See the Navajo Nation government in action as the 88 council delegates (representing 110 Navajo Nation chapters, or communities) discuss critical issues and enact legislation to determine the future of the Navajo people. Reorganized in 1991 to form a three branch system (executive, legislative and judicial), the Navajos conduct what is considered to be the most sophisticated form of Indian government.
While the Council is in session, you'll likely hear delegates carry on the tradition by speaking in Navajo, providing a perfect example of how the Navajo Nation retains its valuable cultural heritage while forging ahead with modern progress. When the Council is not in session, legislative work is done by 12 "standing committees" of the Council Chambers. Inside the circular Council Chambers, the walls are adorned with colorful murals that depict the history of the Navajo People and the Navajo way of life.
