Native America Calling: Crownpoint’s Community Trails project
Tuesday, May 24, 2022

Crownpoint’s Community Trails project
The K’é Community Trails are now officially open after years of work and planning by community organizers in Crownpoint, New Mexico.

The network of ancient and current trails criss-cross the hills and mesas of this chapter of the Navajo Nation. The project brought together a network of local and outside resources to gather local names, create maps, measure trail distances, and construct geographic markers.

Native America Calling talks with KCT project organizers about how the land’s checkerboard status complicated things along the way.

Guests on Native America Calling
Daniel Vandever (Navajo), volunteer with the K’é Community Project

Leonard Perry (Navajo), Crownpoint Chapter vice president and community land use planning committee president

Attila Bality, outdoor recreational planner for the National Park Service
