The Land of Enchantment, where not all who wander are lost
The Community - Chinle, AZ
This opportunity is in Northern Arizona where the Hopi and Navajo
Nations meet. If you like the outdoors and are fascinated by Native
Culture, this assignment is for you. You will be working five
minutes from Canyon de Chelly, one of the largest and most
significant archaeological preserves in the U.S. and if you are not
fascinated by the 5,000 year habitation history of the park, you
will find it by its red rock formations and wooded red-floored
canyons. Meanwhile you will be within driving distance of five
other National Parks including the Grand Canyon. You won't want to
miss the Hubble Trading Post where Navajo and Hopi traded wool
blankets for pesh-tai, tokens that could be used to buy other
goods. It is essentially unchanged since 1833. More importantly you
will be alleviating the health care shortage in one of the most
underserved regions in the U.S The U.S. Navajo and Hopi are 5-6
times more likely to suffer from debilitating chronic health
conditions due to lack of access to health care.
