Naʼnízhoozhí, as we call it in Dine, was founded in 1881 as a railhead camp, and called Gallup after David Gallup, the paymaster of the railroad.  It is surounded by Native lands, both Dine and Ashiwi, and has long been a center of trade.

Located on the famed Route 66 and infamous Route 666, which was recently renamed Route 491.  Naʼnízhoozhí is home to al ot of Native American shops, one of the largest flee markets consisting of mostly Native American arts and crafts, and many outreaches to Native American.  This  week,  Robby and I, along with many of our fellow students will be in Naʼnízhoozhí on our college missions trip.
