Good Shepherd Mission

1 Kit Carson Drive Fort Defiance, Arizona 86504

Good Shepherd Mission sits on the Colorado Plateau in the high desert of Northern New Mexico, in the Four Corners area of the Navajo Nation. We were initiated as a medical mission in the 1880's with the first hospital to the Navajo. Today, we have 50 acres with beautiful buildings, a large organic/permaculture garden, and a historic church. We offer regular church services, retreats and mission group lodging, many social services and the Hummingbird Cafe.

This wonderful shot is from an evening of "Culture Cooking" with cooks Paula, Grace, and Shirley. We sampled blue corn pudding (mush) made with juniper ash, white corn parched with sand, fry bread, and here is our local grass dancer, Ed Scott with a handful of freshly-gathered Navajo Tea - a wonderful and healthful herb that grows nearby.
