OUR MISSION STATEMENT
The Division of Natural Resources is to manage, protect, conserve and preserve the Navajo Nation ‘s natural and cultural resources for the benefit of the Navajo People. In support of this, we will:
- Protect the sovereignty of the Navajo Nation consistent with cultural values;
- Foster partnerships with Federal, State, Tribal and local Navajo communities and other interested parties;
- Provide accountable leadership in optimizing effective use of available resources;
- Conduct our business of Natural and cultural resources in an ethical and consistent manner;

- Use standards of performance to meet organizational needs;
- Enhance job satisfaction and growth needs of our employees.
NATURAL RESOURCE STEWARDSHIP
The mission of the Division is to conserve, protect, and manage the natural and cultural resource assets of the Nation. How do we as DNR staff become better stewards of the Nation’s resources and promote that same ideal to our communities and empower them in a positive manner to assist us in achieving mutually, beneficial goals and objectives? How do we promote local involvement in the conservation and management of their natural resources? How do we promote participation of different stakeholders and how do we enhance both internal and outside entities to take ownership or their resources to benefit their communities and in the long run benefit the Nation.
POLICY DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION
The Division and its departments need to review their core responsibilities and determine if we have the proper direction, through policy and regulation, to address and resolve issues facing us today. It is apparent that different policies need to be modified and in certain instances new policies and laws will need to be established. With the changes made to Title II, the Division must actively move towards a rule-making process. Areas need to be delegated to the Division and legislation and administrative review processes need to be defined and established.
