Formed from water running through sandstone, Antelope Canyon is both a sacred site for the Navajo and a favorite destination for tourists from all over the world.  The canyon walls rise 120 feet tall and streams of sunlight radiate down from the opening in the top of the canyon, creating a stunning scene for photographs. Antelope Canyon is located near Page, Arizona, and is a Navajo Tribal Park. Today, more than 800 Native Youth are participating in the first-ever White House Tribal Youth Gathering, an event designed to help remove the barriers to success for young Native Americans.
