Tohajiilee Indian Reservation
The Tohajiilee Indian Reservation, formerly known as the Canoncito Indian Reservation, is a non-contiguous section of the Navajo Nation lying in parts of western Bernalillo, eastern Cibola, and southwestern Sandoval counties in New Mexico, USA, west of the city of Albuquerque. It has a land area of 121.588 square miles (314.911 km²) and a 2000 census resident population of 1,649 persons. The land area is only about one-half of one percent of the entire Navajo Nation total. The name comes from the Navajo phrase tó hajiileehé, meaning "where people draw up water by means of a cord or rope one quantity after another."
