welcome to The Navajo Nation Zoo !

The Department of Fish and Wildlife and The Navajo Nation Zoo are embarking on a pilot program to legally release GOLDEN EAGLE FEATHERS to the Navajo People. These feathers are 'live' feathers that were naturally shed (molted) from the Eagles at The Navajo Zoo.

This program is being done under federal permits from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that were issued to the Navajo Nation.

Beginning August 13, 2012, enrolled members of the Navajo Nation are able to complete and submit applications for eagle feathers. Application will be provided and received at the Department of Fish and Wildlife office in Window Rock AZ.

To apply, you must bring a valid state-issued I.D. and proof of enrollment as a member of the Navajo Nation. Other provisions apply, so please read the Eagle Feather Distribution Policy recently approved by the Division of Natural Resources.

The Eagle Feather Application is attached...this form is not provided here for use as a valid application, but rather for your information to be sure that you bring the correct materials to the Department of Fish and Wildlife to complete an application.

President Shelly and First Lady

Honorable President Shelly and The First Lady each received an eagle feather on August 24, 2012 after successfully completing their applications.
