Explore the Navajo Nation __ Just as the title says, explore the land, learn about tourism initiatives and Navajo economy. "Since the Long Walk in the 1860's, the Navajo Nation decimated to a population of only 8,000. It has increased to a stronghold of more than 210,000. About 60 percent of Navajos are 24 years old or younger. In its infancy, the Navajo Nation governed itself by a complex language and clan system. The discovery of oil in the early 1920's clarified the need for a more systematic form of government. So, in 1923, the Navajos established a tribal government; thus providing an entity to deal with American oil companies wishing to lease Navajoland for exploration." - illustrated - From Americanwest.com - http://www.americanwest.com/pages/navajo2.htm
