Welcome to the Hózhó Center

Bringing the past into the future, today

 
1X1 - 1920 - NAVJAO MEN & WOMEN DIPPING

Our Dream

The Hozho Center is the future home of a model community which will be based upon the Diné (Navajo) philosophy of Hózhóo (to exist sustainably within the natural environment) and K’é (to exist for the benefit of the community).


The Hozho Center will support a living, sustainable Diné community.  The mission of the Center is to revitalize a Diné traditional economy by offering direct and indirect services to the Diné and their supporters.

 

What We Will Offer

To Make A Difference

Animal Husbandry

The Hozho Center will be the permanent home for the Navajo-Churro sheep.  With their special relationship with the Diné, these sheep will help provide vital land restoration and help resurrect their traditional pastoral economy.  The Hozho Center will maintain a nucleus breeding flock in order to save this endangered breed and to restock Diné sheep camps.

Ceremonial Center

The Hozho Center is committed to the spiritual healing of the people.  The Ceremonial Center will offer facilities needed to host Diné ceremonies, rituals, and practices.   It will also include an herbal garden for the teaching and implementation of traditional healing.

Diné Museum

The Diné Museum will showcase the history of the Diné Nation, culture, and language. Artifacts from the Borrego Trading Post and other reclaimed heritage pieces will be on display within the museum.
