The Navajo Nation Zoo and Botanical Park is the only Native American owned-and-operated Zoo in the Country within a tribally designated park receiving more than 40,000 visitors each year.
The Veteran’s Memorial park is dedicated to the Navajo Code talkers of WWII. The victory in the Pacific arena of that war was attributed to the Navajo code talkers providing secure communications for the US military. Since the Navajo language is not a written language, the Japanese could not study the words nor interpret the communications during the war.

Window Rock #Arizona is more than just the Navajo capitol. At the base of the sandstone arch is a tribute to Dine veterans who served and a monument to Navajo Code Talkers, who saved so many lives in WWII and weren't allowed to discuss their service for decades. Very moving. pic.twitter.com/yTpMPMSSQ0
