Arizona Navajos are Native American people identifying or identified as members of a Navajo tribe or reservation sampled in the state of Arizona. The Navajo Nation is the largest within the U.S. They are also known as Dine (“The People”). Baseball center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury is the first Native American of Navajo descent to reach the Major Leagues.
The Native American – Arizona – Navajo population data represent DNA samples from 93 Native American (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Native_Americans_in_the_United_States) individuals in the state of Arizona’s Navajo Nation tribal lands. Samples were provided by the Arizona Department of Public Safety.
