Initially a resource for incoming Foreign Exchange students, this document has evolved to contain nearly 200 questions with answers about day to day living in Navajo Land. The answers have been compiled with the help of many individuals in the community. Each person contributed their unique style and insights. The document continues to grow as new questions are received, though at a slower rate. The questions and answers are valuable information for those moving here as part of their career, for tourists who seek an understanding of the Dineh and for anyone wanting to know more about life among the Dineh (Navajo People.)

The keyboard is remapped and the numeric keys become vowels with diacritical marks. Developed at and originally offered by Grey Hills High School. However, that site has been down for a long time.
