A fond farewell to fair season! Enjoy photos of this year’s Western Navajo Fair, October 11-14, 2018 in Tuba City, Arizona.

Western Navajo Fair’s combination rodeo arena underwent a major facelift over the summer. Now the team behind a young Diné contractor is putting the finishing touches on the arena that is more ideal for multi-event cowboys and cowgirls.

Country singer George Jones had passed out in Gray Mountain, Arizona, just before his show at the inaugural Western Navajo Fair in 1968. “Áadi sitii hanoo, (he passed out) in Dzil Libéí,” said Jimmie Barlow, 81, who along with nine men, started the first-ever Western naa’ahóóhai in 1967.

To kick off National Domestic Violence month, recognized yearly in October, the Coalition to Stop Violence Against Native Women is sponsoring “I will Run For Her” on Saturday, Oct. 6.

The Navajo Nation Zoo continues to make improvements since it began operations in 1963.

Miyamura High English teacher Shinae Reid, Diné, made a startling discovery as she talked with her class about the Window Rock area.
