Community residents work in Navajo, New Mexico and with Government programs in Fort Defiance and Window Rock. Some residents raise sheep and cattle. The fertile hill country provides good grazing areas for livestock. The mountain are, including New Mexico State Route 134 over Narbona Pass (former Washington Pass), has great scenic and recreational qualities. Students at the Dine College advocated in changing the name of Washington Pass to Narbona Pass to pay tribute to an early famous Navajo leader. Several mountain lakes throughout the Chuskas offer good trout fishing.
Narbona Pass is the site for one of the most popular cross-country running in the southwestern region. The annual race has become very competitive.
