Continued Navajo raids in the area led Brigadier General James H. As a result, the appropriately named fort experienced intense fighting, culminating in an unsuccessful 1860 attack by the Navajo. The Navajo Treaty of 1868 allowed those interned to return to a portion of their land, and Fort Defiance was reestablished as an Indian agency that year. Carleton's "solution" was brutal: thousands of starving Navajo were forced to the Long Walk of the Navajo Walk and interned near Fort Sumner, New Mexico, much of their livestock was destroyed. The population was 4,061 at the United States Census, 2000 census.

Fort Defiance was established in 1851 to create a military presence in Navajo Nation bikéyah (Navajo territory).
