The first community meeting is said to have assembled under a tree about two miles from the present chapter house. Sheep dipping and branding of livestock were the main topics of the community in the earlier days. Forest Lake Chapter is unique because of its isolated location. The chapter is located on top of Black Mesa in the mid, north central part of the Navajo Reservation in Arizona. Due to the remoteness, emergency services are not realized in time, i.e., police and ambulance services. People remain traditional and continue to depend on livestock.
The Forest Lake Chapter conducts monthly meetings to keep residents informed; residents have a forum to express their opinions to their Navajo Nation Council Delegate or to decide on matters concerning the chapter.
