Canyon de Chelly National Monument is unique among
National Monuments in that it lies wholly on Navajo
Tribal Trust land. The National Park Service works
together with the Navajo Nation to manage the Park.
The Canyon sustains a community of Navajo people.
The Monument was established April 1, 1931. Two
major canyons form a "Y" with Monument Canyon. The
south branch is Canyon de Chelly while the north branch
is Canyon del Muerto. This arch and Arch Two both are
found on the trail to White House Ruin. This trail begins
on the south branch. In northeast Arizona, take U.S. 191
to Chinle. The Park is just east of town.
