Navajo Nation Council Chambers
Navajo Nation Council Chambers Review
The murals on the walls of this handsome structure, built to resemble a large ceremonial hogan, depict scenes from the history of the tribe, and the bell beside the entrance was a gift to the tribe by the Santa Fe Railroad to commemorate the thousands of Navajos who built the railroad. Visitors can observe sessions of the council, where 88 delegates representing 110 reservation chapters meet on the third Monday of January, April, July, and October. Turn east off Indian Highway 12, about 0.5 mile north of AZ 264, to reach the Council Chambers. Nearby Window Rock Navajo Tribal Park & Veteran's Memorial is a memorial park honoring Navajo veterans, including the famous World War II code talkers.
