Emery Yazzie, 9, plays with the door to the makeshift outhouse behind his family’s home with no toilet, shower, or running water. “Where do you guys get your water at?” Emery asks a friend, Quindencia Begay, 8. “I don't know, the sink, I guess,” she responds. “No really, where do you get water from?” he asks again, frustrated. The ownership of land and the homes with and without access to water make up a vast checkerboard of haves and have-nots, especially along the eastern edge of the Navajo Nation. Neighbors watch as neighbors are connected to the water lines, sometimes with pipes running through their property that they cannot tap. The water flows just below their feet, but cannot be touched.
