Navajo Farms in an Arid Land

Navajo Farms in an Arid Land American History Native-Americans and First Peoples  Social Studies Tragedies and Triumphs

This scene depicts a Navajo farm in the area of Church Rock, New Mexico.  It is part of the land reserved for the Navajo Nation.

Because the area is so arid, Navajo farms depend entirely on flood irrigation (as reflected in the caption of this picture).  The image was included in the 1936 "Navajo Annual Extension Report."

Church Rock gets its name from a natural wonder (and special Navajo place) which is located not far from this farm.
