Canyon de Chelly National Monument reflects one of the longest continuously inhabited landscapes of North America and boasts distinctive cultural resources such as architecture, artifacts, and rock imagery. The remarkable preservation integrity of the monument provides outstanding opportunities for study and contemplation.

Comprised entirely of Navajo Tribal Trust Land that remains home to the canyon community, Canyon de Chelly is unique among National Park service units.
