The staff at Crownpoint Chapter welcomes you to our official website. The Crownpoint Chapter is currently working on its Chapter Certification in compliance with the Local Governance Act.  The Crownpoint Chapter Community Land-use Planning Committee was certified in December 30, 2004.  This Chapter is working hard in helping develop this community thru economic development and is currently progressing in local governance.

The history of Crownpoint goes back to the first inhabitants when the Anasazi lived here in the local area.  It was here they farmed and hunted as well as engaged in social activities.  The Dine also came along side the Ansazi and lived in the local area. They called this area T’iis ts’ooz nideeshgiizh because of the greasewood and cottonwood which grew in the back canyons.  In more contemporary times, a man from Idaho came and became the first Superintendent for the new Easten Navajo Agency.  Samuel F. Stacher established the new government agency and the new Pueblo Bonito Boarding School in 1910.  Later a trading post, a church, and other residential housing were built.  All thru this time, the Dine have maintained their culture and heritage, including continued their cultural native practices, which still plays an important and powerful role in their day-to-day life.

The Chapter was established in 1965. The Crownpoint community is located in the Northwestern region of New Mexico and in the mid-southern part of the “Checkerboard” area.  It is located approximately 55 miles northeast of Gallup, New Mexico.  New Mexico State Vietnam Veterans Memorial Highway 371 goes through Crownpoint, connecting with Farmington (82 miles to the north) and with Thoreau, New Mexico (24 miles to the south). The completed highway has added traffic volume by 125% since 1980.  This highway is also a part of the Scenic Byway road which relates to culturally and historically scenic areas.
The Crownpoint Chapter conducts monthly meetings to keep residents informed of local developments.  It is here that the residents have a forum to express their opinions to their Navajo Nation Council Delegate and the Chapter officials on matters concerning their Chapter or Community.

We urge you to come back and visit us again very soon!
