Jared King

Washington, District of Columbia Travel Agent

An independent agent with Nexion LLC in Irving, TX, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Native American Travel and Meetings Specialist

My name is Jared King. I am the owner of Yeego Travel Meetings and Events LLC, a 100 percent Native American-owned full-service travel and meeting and event planning company. I am a proud citizen of the Navajo Nation and the United States originally from Naschitti, New Mexico and have resided in Washington, DC for the last 14 years. For the last 11 years, I have developed expertise in travel and meeting event planning for individuals and groups of all sizes and budgets across the country. I have developed working relationships with Native American communities, organizations and tribal governments in traveling to Washington, DC for their meetings with the federal government and Congress. I am developing leisure travel for the American, European and Asian markets wanting to visit Native American communities throughout the United States.  

I am a citizen of the Navajo Nation and the United States and have traveled extensively to Mexico, Canada, Chile, Australia, France, Italy, Hawaii and other states within the continental United States. In 2015, I founded Yeego Travel Meetings and Events LLC specializing in cultural tourism, meetings and event production, and travel management.

I began my career in developing Native American Cultural Interpretation programs for museums and public parks. I founded and led the cultural interpretation program at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC in its inaugural years. I am also the founder of the American Indian Interpretive Area at Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site, a living history museum located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. In 2014, I was a member of the Navajo Nation delegation that successfully repatriated seven sacred Navajo masks from Paris France. I led the government-to-government collaboration effort in raising international awareness of cultural patrimony. In 2009, I was invited by the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian in a cross-cultural exchange with the Republic of Croatia at the Red Rocks Arts and Crafts Festival in Zagreb. Along with Navajo traditional sand painter Nolan Chee and Phyllis Wilson, we represented the living art of sand painting to faculty, students and the public at the Croatian-American Society, performed with award-winning Anishinabe recording artist Keith Secola, and arranged and facilitated media interviews commemorating the exchange.  

In Navajo culture, we introduce ourselves to others by telling you our maternal and paternal clans. My clans are Tl’ááshchí’í (Red Bottom People) and born for Táchii’nii (Red-Running-Into-The-Water). My maternal grandfathers are Tábaahá (Water's Edge) and my paternal grandfathers are Dziltl’ahnii (Mountain Cove). I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology from The Colorado College.

My fiancé and I used Yeego Travel for a recent trip down to DC. Jared got us a top floor room right in the heart of the neighborhood we most wanted to be in for an incredible price. I'd recommend Yeego Travel to anyone (and have numerous times). - S. Robertson, Brooklyn, New York.

Very nice trip

Reviewed By PR - Washington, DC | Traveled to New York City ~ New York ~ USA
Jared made it very easy to book with him. Also, on checkout, I had a problem with the billing. Since I didn't have the time to deal with it, I let Jared know and he handled the issue while I went about my business. I got a text from him later on saying the issue was taken care of and I received a refund. That was very convenient. It also showed that Jared is capable of handling travel issues.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Our most fun and stress free trip

Reviewed By Karyth - Albuquerque | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
Jared is a super star in customer service and makes you feel like you're the only person he's working with. Plus, this was my first time using a travel agent for my travels and didn't know what to expect. I was so happy with the service, as well as the places and accommodations he made for us. Everything was easy and our vacation was stress free. We recommend Yeego and Jared!

Loving Universal Studios in the Spring!

Reviewed By Orlando resort - orlando, FL | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
I knew where I wanted to go for our vacation, but I had very little idea about how the universal orlando resort options worked (park tickets, transportation, etc.). So, I explained to Jared what I needed and he provided simple and clear packages. He answered all, thats right ALL my questions promptly and clearly. He made sure the resort had spa options and that we had shuttles to and fro the airport. All we had to do was show up!

The resort was BEAUTIFUL. And the packages for Universal Orlando Studios was just what we needed. I will definitely work with Jared again to book our next vacation/trip!
