Navajo Reservation - Map

Navajo Reservation - Map American History Native-Americans and First Peoples  Social Studies Geography

Members of the Navajo Nation refer to the Anasazi people as “The Ancient Ones.”  This map depicts where the Anasazi lived. 

Today, the Navajo Nation extends into Utah, Arizona and New Mexico.  Of the 27,000 square miles which comprises the Navajo Reservation, there are lakes, ponds, historic sites and many national monuments.  Lake Powell, for example, has about 186 miles of Navajo shoreline.

Historical sites which still exist give people today an opportunity to see how the Anasazi people lived thousands of years ago.
