What - and who - is behind Navajo Nature?

The website is a collaborative effort. It involves people and institutions that are all working towards creating a valuable research, information and learning resource for and about the Navajo Reservation.

The Navajo Ant Project (NAP) includes institutional collaborations between the Navajo Nation's Diné College and the college's Diné Environmental Institute in Shiprock, New Mexico and the Harvard University Native American Program and Harvard University's Museum of Comparative Zoology in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

The Navajo Ant Project (NAP) is also a participating member of the Global Ant Project and is also collaborating with the Colorado Plateau Museum of Arthropod Biodiversity.
