Our family has lived in Monument Valley for many generations, they have witnessed many changes over the century.
Tourism was one of the largest changes to come to the area and is one of the largest forms of income for the local population living in Monument Valley.
In the early 1900s, A local trader named Harry Goulding, introduced Monument Valley to Hollywood director John Ford.
Mr. Ford then filmed many westerns that made Monument Valley an iconic backdrop for many more films to come. Motion picture films then opened a new market that brought many tourists that opened another new form of income for the area, tourism.
Our great grandparents, Willie and Happy Cly, were one of the many local Navajo pioneers that started to cater their services to the new form of income brought to the area.
Today, many tourists from all over the world come to Monument Valley to see in person, what they have seen in the media for themselves.
