Yellow Wood Associates, Inc. trained nearly 60 people in You Get What You MeasureĀ® at the Navajo Chapter House in Cameron, Arizona in December 2000. Participants included a mix of Native and non-Native Americans, youth and elders, men and women, who came together to establish the goals and indicators of progress they would use for the Navajo Hogan Project. The Navajo Hogan Project sought to provide affordable housing for elderly Navajos and others in a traditional structure using small diameter wood from the National Forest.

Our facilitator Shanna Ratner from Yellow Wood Associates was terrific and I feel really helped us identify some of the key issues and opportunities to focus on as we take our next big steps forward.
