The fire has burned over 14,000 acres since it began on June 13. Community members of Crystal, Naschitti and others have been affected by this tragedy.
As a gesture of support, Shiprock held the For the People Assayii Wildfire Benefit Concert at the Phil Thomas Performing Arts Center on June 19.
Instead of paying a $5 or $10 entrance fee, people were asked to donate material that would benefit the families, pets and livestock affected by the fire.
