Native Americans lack clean drinking water at an alarming rate. Please join us in our efforts to bring clean water to tribal homes.
A shocking percentage of Native Americans living on reservations lack access to clean drinking water. There is a direct correlation between the number of Native American homes with potable water and the death and postneonatal mortality rates in Indian Country.
On the Navajo Nation, which is located in Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah, roughly 40 percent of the population – nearly 70,000 tribal members – lack access to running water.

NATIVE AMERICAN DRINKING WATER CRISIS
Red CanyonTM Water is bottled water created to help Native Americans struggling to fulfill life’s basic needs. Unfortunately, a shocking percentage of Native Americans living on reservations lack access to clean drinking water, and in some cases lack access to running water all together. According to the federal government, “[o]ne of the most important public health challenges facing Native American Indians and Alaska Natives . . . is the disproportionate lack of access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation.” In fact, safe drinking water and sanitary sewage disposal are unavailable in 13 percent of American Indian/Alaska Native homes on reservations, compared with 1 percent for the overall U.S. population. In some areas of the country, nearly 40% of the Native American population on Indian reservations lack access to running water. Unfortunately, the cost to provide all American Indians and Alaska Natives with safe drinking water and adequate sewerage systems in their homes is estimated to be $3.4 billion. https://www.ihs.gov/newsroom/index.cfm/factsheets/safewater. To help address this crisis, Red CanyonTM Water will donate $.12 for every bottle of Red Canyon Bottled Water sold to the Navajo Water Project and Running Strong for American Indian Youth’s Clean Water Program..
