In Arizona on the Navajo Reservation there is a spring that is called the Dine’ Spring. The word “Dine'” is the name the tribe uses for themselves instead of Navajo. The Origin of the Name “Navajo” is a Spanish adaptation of the Tewa Pueblo word navahu’u, meaning “farm fields in the valley. The Dine’ Spring is the only source of water in that area or the reservation, (close to Tuba City) and is used for drinking, crops, and all uses. It’s considered a very sacred spring and runs full all year around.
