Jeddito Chapter

Our Story

The Navajo name of Jadi to (Antelope Water) was derived from nearby watering points, which were frequently used by antelopes.  Most families living within the Jeddito “island” are members of the extended families who were forcefully evicted from the old Hopi Reservation (District 6) in September and October of 1944.  This marked the first mass relocation of Navajos determined to be living on the wrong side of the Navajo-Hopi boundary.  The portion referred to as Jeddito “island” is totally surrounded by the Hopi Partitioned Land.  Another segment of the chapter land base is part of the main Navajo reservation on the Apache County side.  The “island” part is situated exclusively in Navajo County.

The Jeddito Chapter conducts meetings monthly to keep residents informed; residents have a forum to express their opinions to their Navajo Nation Council Delegates or to decide on matters concerning their chapter.

MISSION STATEMENT

It will be the Mission Statement of the Jeddito Chapter to foster the four stages of Dine Philosophy of the life; Nitsá’hakees (Thinking), Nahatá (Planning), Iina (Life), and Siihasin (Values) through the concept of Ahilna’a nish by acquisition of resources and implementation of planned activities for the benefit of the community members.

VISION STATEMENT

Establish a healthy environment that embraces the Dine way of life through the recognition and implementation of Nitsá’kakees (Thinking), Nathatá (Planning), Iina (Life), and Siihasin (Values) and its application to the growth of infrastructural, community and economic developments.
