What I like about Tuba City is that it is a Navajo community and on the Navajo reservation. I do like to see my own people in the town and makes me proud of who I am. I would like to see some changes like roads and community centers. To make Tuba City a safer and cleaner place to live. Also making jobs available to people that live there as well. A lot of people on the reservation do not have jobs and rely on the government, so jobs would be something great!

Tuba City is located on a Navajo Indian Reservation. I grew up here as a Caucasian. So I was a minority. I was 1 of 3 white students in my graduating class of about 150 students. Although I was a minority amongst minorities, I had an excellent experience. I had many friends and grew to love the Native American people. My family has lived on the reservation for almost 30 years and I expect to come back after I graduate and continue to give back to the community because so much was given to me through experience and learning opportunities.
Something I would love to change about Tuba City is the mentality of most of the people who live here. It is a mentality of entitlement and because of that, the work ethic is very weak amongst them. I would love to help develop a program or initiative that gives young students the ability to learn that they are blessed but they need to be willing to work hard to have high self-esteem and be motivated to reach their goals in life.
Tuba City is a small community town that resides on the Navajo reservation in Arizona. Tuba City community people come together when there are events that are out together such as health promotions, gardening, cleaning and festivals. The number one spot when the whole community, other places in the reservation people come to attend is the Western Navajo Fair where all sorts of carnival rides and food stands. This is a place where tourism of visitors come to see the Grand Canyon, Lake Havasupi, and the Native American culture and tradition. But one thing that this place could possibly change is the animal cruelty of abandoning cats, dogs and horses around town. As a animal lover, I tend to help these homeless animals by feeding them whenever I possibly can. But that is one aspect that could be changed if there was a 24/7 veterinarian care provider.
