Mexican Springs Chapter is located in Mexican Springs, New Mexico 18 miles north of Gallup, New Mexico and nestled at the foothills of the Chuska Mountain. We are located along U.S. Highway 491 (formerly known as 666). We are at a central location within the District 14 communities and three miles west of U.S. Highway 491. Within the Mexican Springs community, there is a Senior Center, 40 NHA units, food distribution warehouse, and the Bowl Canyon (Assayi Lake Camp).  

Mexican Springs Chapter was recognized as a chapter Government in 1955. The Community population is roughly around 1,200. Its Navajo name is Nakai Bito which means Mexican’s water.  Storytellers from our community say that there were Mexicans who lived at the old Trading Post; one day a Mexican man was in the arroyo south of the chapter house and was digging up water, thereafter that’s the name of this community.
