The Navajo People were recognized as a Nation by the Treaty of 1868. The Navajo Nation encompasses portions of Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah, covering over 27,425 square miles of land. In the 2010 Census, our shareholder population was recorded at 332,129 The Diné (Navajo) People speak the Navajo language, also known as Diné Bizáád, spoken by approximately 175,000 people in the United States and elsewhere. The Diné (Navajo) are the root of DDC.
