Keep us informed about Rez events

The Navajo and Hopi Reservations encompass a vast geographic area. Consequently, our Editorial staff will often be unable to cover different events that occur within these far-flung boundaries.

If we are unable to attend your event, we will happily publish photos you take as well as your written summary of the event. If photos are e-mailed to us in JPEG format, we can place them directly onto our pages. If you send us a photo via U.S. mail or drop it by the front desk, our Graphics staff will scan it.

Please give us a way of contacting you should we need additional information and an address so we can return photos to you. Do give us a heads up when something is going on in your area preferably via e-mail so we can get your information speedily and accurately. The e-mail address is nhoeditorial@navajohopiobserver.com.

You can also reach us by phone at 928-226-9696 or 1-877-3787 (toll-free) and by fax at 928-226-1115.

We look forward to hearing from you.
