Navajo Hogan Project Could Increase Housing Options


Navajo Nation officials say construction has started on a hogan prototype in Tse Bonito, New Mexico. It’s part of an initiative meant to increase housing options on the Nation, particularly for veterans. President Jonathan Nez’s office says the prototype involves a 1,200-square-foot hogan with two bedrooms, though other models for larger households are involved. Nez says the Tribe plans to launch local manufacturing facilities on the Navajo Nation.
