A film maker's land of opportunity

The Navajo Tribal membership is estimated to be approximately 200,000.

The NAVAJOLAND base is 25,000 square miles covering a large portion of Arizona, a part of New Mexico and a small section of Utah.

The topography of the territory includes mountain peaks which reach elevations of 8,000 to 10,000 feet and desert valleys where the elevation may be as low as 4,000 feet.

The climate of the region varies according to topography, but is generally cool and arid.

Navajo Nation, has it all. Wide open spaces with inviting mountains and breath taking sunsets.

Additionally, we'll assist you in finding the perfect location as your Location Scout.

And we we'll make certain your stay is both pleasant and productive.
