Abstract

Straddling the Continental Divide, from the Chuska Mountains to the San Juan and Little Colorado rivers, mostly in Arizona, but partly in New Mexico and Utah, lies 23,574 square miles of desert; home to the estimate l75 to 90 thousand Navajo Indians. Unable to more than eke out a bare existence in a barren land where almost 30 acres of range are needed to sustain one sheep, unprepared after generations of isolation and neglect to leave this reservation for areas where a descend standard of living can be had, the Navajos, since 1950, have been the object of a "crash" program of rehabilitation by the United states Government.
