The Kayenta Connection is underwritten by Kayenta Homes & Properties for the benefit of the Kayenta Community.
A few weeks ago we sent a letter out to the community in response to many of the misconceptions we have heard about Kayenta Homes & Properties and what we do, who we represent and what we sell. Over the next few months and in the spirit of this letter we will expand our Fiction/Fact discussion giving our community a better understanding of our services.
With our location in the Kayenta Art Village, our Concept Home and all of our specific and general marketing of the Kayenta Community we bring a steady stream of possible future Kayenta residence to our door and through our neighborhood. This advantage helps us to introduce many people to Kayenta and gives us the ability to help them understand the uniqueness of our special place in Southern Utah. It’s our goal to provide these potential buyers with all the information that they need to make the best decision that fits their future housing needs.
Currently there are three homes under contract in Kayenta and two out of the three buyers are represented by us!
We hope you all are enjoying the beautiful spring weather and look forward to seeing you in the future. We appreciate your continued support.

Blue Grass in Utah?
In this one-time-only performance at Kayenta, Native Grass will be performing cover songs that are favorites of JD, Dave and Lindsey with guest Mandolinist Thayles Smith as part of their Concert at the Kayenta Center for the Arts. Walter Josey will be joining the group at the end of the show to perform several of his original songs.
The Native Grass Band is from Southwest Utah. Native Grass writes and performs their own original music in a Bluegrass style with Western influences. Creative compositions and unique vocals and instrumentals, Native Grass offers a fresh and exciting take in their interpretation of Bluegrass music. Lindsey Short is on Banjo and vocals, JD Thompson holds down the Bass and vocals, Dave Holder handles the Six String and vocals, and Walter Josey with the Mandolin and vocals. These blend of musicians, along with a distinctive approach to creative original songs, makes hearing Native Grass and special musical experience.
After Movie discussion, led by Fletcher Shives
In the spring of 2005, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment for National Geographic: to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. Even with a scientific upbringing, Balog had been a skeptic about climate change. But that first trip north opened his eyes to the biggest story in human history and sparked a challenge within him that would put his career and his very well-being at risk.
Chasing Ice is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet. Within months of that first trip to Iceland, the photographer conceived the boldest expedition of his life: The Extreme Ice Survey. With a band of young adventurers in tow, Balog began deploying revolutionary time-lapse cameras across the brutal Arctic to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers.
As the debate polarizes America and the intensity of natural disasters ramps up globally, Balog finds himself at the end of his tether. Battling untested technology in subzero conditions, he comes face to face with his own mortality. It takes years for Balog to see the fruits of his labor. His hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate. Chasing Ice depicts a photographer trying to deliver evidence and hope to our carbon-powered planet.
