Chapter House – Navajo Nation

A Chapter house (Navajo: Áłah nidaʼadleeh dah bighan) is an administrative, communal meeting place on the territory of the Navajo Nation where residents have a forum to express their opinions to their Navajo Nation Council Delegate or to decide on matters concerning their chapter. As of January 2004, there were a total of 110 such meeting places in existence. However, the input given to the delegates during such meetings is not legally binding.

John G. Hunter, superintendent of the Leupp Agency, is generally given credit for the establishment of the Chapter system starting in 1922 in an effort to bolster Navajo self-determination and local governance.
