The Navajo Nation spans more than 17 million acres, covering three U.S. states (Arizona, Utah and New Mexico). Most Arizonans know this much; just as most know the headquarters for the Navajo Nation Council and Supreme Court are also located right here in Arizona. But not everyone knows that right in the middle of the Navajo governmental campus is a little-known natural wonder that is a sacred spot for traditional Navajo medicine men.
