How large is the Navajo Nation?

Current demographics show that there are at least 300,000 living people in the United States who meet the blood quantum requirements for membership in the Navajo Nation. However, just over half of these, about 174,000, live on Navajo Nation land ( ), with the remainder scattered throughout the country. The Navajo Nation is considered one of the largest tribal governments of any of the American Indian tribes, and is one of the best organized.
The Navajo Nation includes a judicial system as well as a legislative branch and executive office. Its large social service divisions and law enforcement group as well as the presence of its own college separate it from many of the smaller tribal nations and set it apart as a unique governmental entity in its own right. Among all the tribal government systems, the Navajo Nation ( ) is one of the most famous and best-known in all of North America.
