Henry Chee Dodge

Navajo political leader
Birthplace: Fort Defiance, Ariz.
Native American Henry Chee Dodge (c.1857–1947) was one of the most famous and revered Navajo tribal leaders.

The identity of Dodge's father is uncertain, but he may have been a white Indian agent or Army officer. His mother was a Navajo-Jemez Indian who was killed during a campaign led by Kit Carson against the Navajos in 1864. The survivors, including Dodge, were forced to walk hundreds of miles from northeast Arizona to northwest New Mexico, where they were confined on the Bosque Redondo Reservation at Fort Sumner. In 1868 Dodge returned to Fort Defiance with his adopted Navajo family.
