Description

The Navajo Nation covers nearly 28,000 square miles throughout portions of Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah and is larger than any of the ten smallest U.S. states. It’s the largest area maintained by an indigenous tribe in the United States and contains over 350,000 inhabitants. It’s no wonder, then, why the Navajo Tribal Council would want to enlist the help of the talented illustrator, Don Bloodgood, to create this map to promote their lands, tribe, and heritage.

The sky blue border features stunning illustrations of prominent natural features, wildlife, and native craftsmanship. Within the map, the Navajo people comprise the vast majority of the illustrations, which include an interesting mix of traditional and modern aspects of the culture. Uranium miners and rug weavers, dirt paths and state highways, ancient rock formations, and modern convenience stations all co-exist in this idyllic representation.
