Well, the Navajo Council Naabik’iyati Committee got through the confirmation of Tommy Platero to the Navajo Technical Univesity Board with a VOTE of 12 in favor, 0 opposed on LEGISLATION 0129-14.
The Naabi Committee is now on LEGISLATION 0130-14, WHICH IS ASKING FOR SUPPORT OF A LITTLE COLORADO RIVER LEVEE AT WINSLOW, ARIZ., FEASIBILITY STUDY because of flooding in Winslow where about 130 Navajo families live, which includes families uprooted from their ancestral lands because of the so-called Navajo-Hopi-US land dispute.
SPONSOR, DELEGATE WALTER PHELPS
Levee along Interstate 40 has flooded. we have lot of assets which include buses, hospital, elders and patients that are transported to Winslow for health care.
DELEGATE LEONARD TSOSIE
is there an alternative for capturing the flood waters? i don’t know where all the activists go. they don’t even have shovels. but when we try to do something for navajo, they get on their little horses and ride over here.
