The history of the land dates back to ancient times. Petroglyphs, arrow heads and shards of pottery can be found while hiking, remnants of days long past can still be seen in the artifacts of local Dine’, as well as in the old wagon trails littered with antique glass that glitter in the sun.  During the Long Walk period of Navajo history, Baya’s ancestors hid in the canyons from the United States Army to escape being forcibly removed and marched hundreds of miles to Fort Sumner in New Mexico.  The family history can be traced to these grazing lands for fifteen generations. Hogans that Baya’s ancestors built are still standing, and their knowledge of the history of the land is still on their tongues for anyone interested in listening and learning.
