Navajo Mountain Water Tank & Fill Station

United States Navajo Mountain, Utah
$1,000 needed (9%)
Support this project
Piute Mesa is part of the Navajo Mountain/Naatsis'áán Chapter and is located in one of the most remote corners of the Navajo Nation. In 1864, the region’s miles of winding canyons allowed many Navajo to escape the Long Walk to Bosque Redondo. Many residents here are descended from Navajo that never took the Long Walk and, to this day, have maintained many traditional Navajo practices. Many speak little English. There are also many older residents in this project area who struggle to haul their own water.

54% of occupied housing units in Navajo Mountain chapter lack complete plumbing facilities. The most need is among those living on Piute Mesa. Here, there are not clusters of homes concentrated in single areas; families live fairly spread out. 
This portion of the project is to fund an elevated water storage tank! Our implementing project partner, DigDeep, will also be partnering with local artists to decorate the tank, which will be a beacon of hope on Piute Mesa.
