Learning on the Navajo Nation

The beauty of the Navajo Nation is spread out over 25,000 square miles — an area roughly the same size as West Virginia. It’s home to more than 170,000 people — many of those who are living without the resources a lot of us take for granted.

“It was very hard,” explains Tuba City Elementary teacher Kayli Nockideneh. “It was very stressful.”

“Whatever comes our way, we were able to adapt to it,” she explains. “We try our best to work around it. We still are. That’s our biggest strength I see throughout our reservation.”
