"The Navajo Community College is fundamentally Indian. Its view of education is derived from the realities of the Indian life. Its courses of instruction open the world of ideas to Indians. Most important, the policy direction and guidance for the College is Navajo Indian because the members of the Board of Regents are selected by the Navajo Tribal Government and people. It is in their behalf that I bring you the hopes of our College's faculty , staff, and students that we can join forces for economic and social betterment of all Indian people though education of our own choosing."

Board of Regents Meeting, Tsaile-Wheatfields Chapter House, November 1968
"We are all very proud about the College. Our plans are big...in the past many Navajo parents sent their children to college away from the reservation; often they failed and came home. Now we have a college on the reservation so our students can go to college here at home. We have our own language and culture in the curriculum... We will be able to provide a first change for the many that never had a chance before.
