Job Description

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.
