America's Best Idea: Some Navajo still struggle with eviction from Wupatki National Monument

America's Best Idea: Some Navajo still struggle with eviction from Wupatki National Monument

Flagstaff, AZ – The second installment of "America's Best Idea." Wupatki was established to protect dozens of ancient dwellings, built by the ancestors of the Hopi and other pueblo tribes. More recently, though, Navajos lived at Wupatki. Over the past decades Navajo people have known the area by two names: the earlier word translates roughly as "the place where Anasazi things are." The second name means "within the fence," which came into use after the land was declared a national monument in 1924.

North Country tries to grow with demand
