Painted Desert Community Complex National Historic Landmark Nomination, Petrified Forest National Park, Arizona.

Annie Dodge Wauneka Tanner Springs Log House Complex National Historic Landmark Nomination, Apache County, Arizona. The National Collaborative for Women's History Sites has selected Front Range to prepare a National Historic Landmark nomination for Annie Dodge Wauneka's Tanner Springs Log House Complex in northeastern Arizona. The property is significant under NHL Criterion 2 as a property “associated importantly with the lives of persons nationally significant in the history of the United States.” The document will focus on Annie Dodge Wauneka’s (1910-97) leadership as a member of the Navajo Tribal Council in fighting tuberculosis on the Navajo reservation during the 1950s and 1960s. She bridged the cultural divide between traditional Navajo and Western medical practices, and the nomination will explore her leadership efforts both as a woman and a Native American against the backdrop of the era. Her status as the daughter of an important Navajo chief (Henry Chee Dodge) provides an additional layer of context to examine.

The project is being undertaken for Garrison Properties of Kansas City, Missouri.
