A project developed in 2006 by Jeannie Martnez-Welles (Monaghan) and John L. Welles at the University of New Mexico - Gallup Campus, USA, involved designing a solar box cooker that would be used to promote solar cooking among the local Native American population. Using funds from the Centers for Disease Control, and the National Institues of Health, the UNM-G Solar Oven was developed and distributed across the Navajo Nation, and Zuni Reservation.
Jean Martinez-Monaghan began solar cooking herself in 2002, and since 2013, has taught approximately 700 people to solar cook.
