Monument Valley Tribal Park is located within the larger area of Monument Valley (Tsé Biiʼ Ndzisgaii in Navajo). From the visitor center, you see the world-famous panorama of the Mitten Buttes and Merrick Butte. Monument Valley has been the setting for many movies, especially the westerns of director John Ford. His favorite actor was of course John Wayne. There is an admission fee to drive the 17 mile dirt road through the Park. Better yet, you can take one of the Navajo guided tours for a narrated cruise through parts of the Park not accessible from the road.
Bonus - Monument Valley High School Homecoming
I happened to be staying at Gouldings Lodge in 2007 the same weekend that Monument Valley High School was having its homecoming parade. The high school's mascot is the cougar and the school colors are purple and gold if you can't tell from the photos below.
