"Servicing the Governmental Needs of the Bodaway/Gap Chapter Residents."
The Bodaway/Gap Chapter is located on the western edge of the Navajo Nation. The chapter has several names including: Tsin' naabaas Hwabiteen, Ba'adoweih, Hwabiteen and Gap. It is said that Bodaway is a Bayoodzin (Puite) word. "Gap" is named after a crossing at the pass over along ridge. The old wagon trail is now a two-lane dirt road, yet to be paved.
The Bodaway/Gap Chapter conducts monthly meetings to keep residents informed; residents have a forum to express their opinions to their Navajo Nation Council Delegate or to decide on matters concerning their chapter.
