HERE AT NAVAJO COUNCIL NAABIK’IYATI COMMITTEE WHERE DEBATE CONTINUES ON LEGISLATION 0082-14, FEDERAL FUNDING FOR CONSTRUCTION OF NEW GALLUP INDIAN MEDICAL CENTER.
DELEGATE LEONARD TSOSIE
0082-14 will leap frog all the other proposed health facilities on the Navajo Reservation. And Delegate Edmund Yazzie has tried this before. And when built new Gallup High School, a private business person benefited. Look at health facilities built on rez, we build lonely clinic. and why chastised Dilkon. and in the name of local planning, Resources and Development Committee allowed them to have their way. And 0082-14 will cause confusion. and when went to federal Health Department, it was clear that the priority list would be funded. and since most health facilities in southwest, small tribes from other areas don’t support. look at Phoenix Indian hospital where largest tribe is Navajo but we don’t support. and when that hospital was broken up, it went to different small tribes where navajos given hard time. so president and council needs to keep eye of these kinds of activities.
