Vast expanses of deeply hued red earth. Impossibly blue skies. This sacred landscape exerts a transcendent pull on all who set foot here. Simply put, Navajo tribal land is synonymous with the American Southwest.

Start your orientation at the Kayenta Visitor’s Center. Housed in a traditional hogan-shaped building, it features a museum, gift shop, and an outdoor amphitheater where native dance performances are often held.
