« back to classes page
The Navajo reservation is the largest Indian reservation in the United States, covering some 17.5 million acres. From the original 1868 Treaty Reservation of 3 million acres, the reservation has grown incrementally over the last century and a half to span four states. This presentation examines what prompted the growth, why contemporary views of Native people led to its expansion and contraction, and how the development in the West and quest for water and natural resources caused conflicts and controversies, and continues to affect Native and non-native communities.
