Kin litso sinili is the Navajo name known by the local community members of the Churchrock Chapter, which translates to "where the yellow buildings are". The name derives from the World War II era when the Fort Wingate Army Depot was an active military post. Civilians that came to work at the Depot were housed just north of the railroad tracks where the NHA Housing area is now located. Rows of homes were constructed for families, but all the homes were painted one color....YELLOW. So when people referred to going to the Churchrock area they would refer to the rows of "yellow buildings" in the area.
