    Navajo US - Southwest
    The Navajo Nation, which occupies 25,000 square miles of land in parts of Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah, was the largest and one of the most resource rich Indian territories in the country in the 1960s. Its development had long been hampered, however, by its status as a Native American reservation. The U.S. government had first begun a campaign to "pacify" the Navajo people and thoroughly disrupt their way of life during the Mexican War. After a protracted battle to retain their ancestral lands, the Navajo people were forced to accept a treaty in 1868 that relegated them to their present territory, and effectively categorized them as second class citizens.
