Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Horses and Grazing on the Navajo Indian Reservation
by Shebala, Rudy R., Ph.D., University of Idaho, 2018, 126; 10788329
Abstract (Summary)

Frequent droughts are common and extreme precipitation is a normal weather pattern for the Navajo country and has been for almost 6000 years. The Navajo do not abandon the often that drought stricken areas demonstrating their ability adapt to extreme weather conditions. For almost 300 years, the Navajo, while in a state of constant warfare with many different surrounding peoples, continued to develop and grow as a tribe, while living off of livestock, farming and hunting. Currently open for public review and comment is a new proposed Navajo Rangeland Improvement Act of 2014. It is the people, the tribal citizen’s needs that need administration.
