Elder Support Activities

The purpose of the Adopt-A-Native-Elder Program is support of Navajo Elders who choose to live in a traditional way. Many of our Elders live in hogans and in very remote locations on reservations in Arizona and Utah.

Many Elders have made their living by raising their own sheep and cattle. The sheep provide wool and food. They weave the wool from their sheep and goats into rugs that they can sell for cash to meet their needs.

There are a variety of ways that you can provide support for Elders who are part of the Adopt-A-Native-Elder Program. These include:
