Located roughly in the center of the Navajo Reservation, Canyon de Chelly extends from the montane highlands of the Defiance Plateau and Chuska Mountains in the east to the arid expanse of the Chinle Valley far to the west. It includes an abundance of physical landforms and ecological communities that provide a diverse mosaic for human settlement.
Canyon de Chelly is the most unique of the National Park service units, as it is comprised entirely of Navajo Tribal Trust Land. The National Park Service works in partnership with the Navajo Nation to manage the park resources at the same time, sustaining the living Navajo community. Canyon de Chelly represents a material record of one of the most enduring and complex cultural landscapes of the American Southwest, a record which changes with each passing day.
