  • Crownpoint (Navajo: T'iists'óóz Ndeeshgizh) is a census-designated place (CDP) in McKinley County, New Mexico, United States founded in 1912. The population was 2,630 at the 2000 census. It is on the Trails of the Ancients Byway, one of the designated New Mexico Scenic Byways. In 1912, Crownpoint was founded by Samuel F. Stacher as an Indian Agency to serve the Navajo People in the Pueblo Bonito Agency of Northwestern New Mexico. A school house, agency office and power house were first built to accommodate future planned establishments. Chief Becenti, a local Navajo headman, is one of the first documented leaders of the area. He resided north of Crownpoint, where later in the 1930s a small community would be named after him called Becenti Lake, New Mexico. In June 1965, Crownpoint was recognized as a local chapter government sub-unit of the Navajo Nation Government. There are currently 110 Navajo Chapters across the Navajo Nation. Crownpoint Chapter is the center of Eastern Navajo Agency and many tribal offices are located in the community. There are currently 31 Navajo Chapters in Eastern Navajo Agency. Jonathan Perry is the current Council Delegate who serves on the 23rd Navajo Nation Council representing the community. Perry represents eight chapters, which are Becenti, Crownpoint, Huerfano, Lake Valley, Nahodishgish, Nageezi, Tse'ii'ahi and White Rock Chapters. He is serving his first term.
