Back in the early 1970's one man saw a dying breed and with it a culture and people.

Mission of The Navajo Sheep Project

It is the mission of the Navajo Sheep Project to preserve and breed back Navajo-Churro sheep so they can return to their historic place and purpose among the Navajo and Hispanic cultures. It is the further mission of the Project to see that the return of the Navajo-Churro benefits the people to whom it has historic and cultural importance. Through the return of the Navajo-Churro, the Project encourages a revival of authentic Navajo and Rio Grande weaving styles, which will improve the economic well-being of those who raise Navajo-Churro and weave wool.
