Skip to content Long Walk of the Navajo (1863-1868)

The Long Walk of the Navajo, also called the Long Walk to Bosque Redondo, was a journey many Navajos made in 1864 to and from a reservation in southeastern New Mexico. The trip lasted about 18 days. Sometimes the “Long Walk” includes all the time the Navajo were away from the land of their ancestors, who had arrived there in the 16th century.
