"When you travel the largest Native American Tribe in the U.S.-the Navajo Nation, the beautiful geographic location is ridden with home made signs. One might argue, why can’t they just buy some new outdoors signs? Well, simply put, the people are more creative and more sensible with art- there is no way you can take that away. Now, if the nations buys new signs to be placed in certain areas of the rez, you will get more stuff to be imported and probably recycled by the tribes waste management. Which will lead more into spending and more trash to litter the beautiful reservation. What can be pointed out is, when you go deep into the rez, their is certain parts of the reservation you will see trash people just dump on other properties. One insightful reason, could be the lack of over sight and vast remoteness of the land. Who is going to sit and watch their property when people come in under the darkness of night to dump their trash." Get the Story:
