This report from the Diné Policy Institute is one of a series that will focus on the question of land reform and renewal. It focuses mainly on survey results from a longitudinal survey in the community of Shonto, which was chosen in order to demonstrate the nature of social change in the Navajo Nation. It is supplemented with findings from subsequent focus groups in Tonalea, Kayenta and Tsaile, and also on the work of the Little Colorado River Watershed Chapter Association to identify new innovative approaches toward grassroots organizing. It generates a sense of how people use the land today and how they would prefer it was managed. The report was made possible with support from First Nations Development Institute, The Solidarity Research Center, and Diné College.
