Din Leaders Pack their Bags for D.C.

The Navajo Times, Jason Begay Posted: Jan 20, 2009

WINDOW ROCK -- About 30 members of the Navajo Nation government have landed in Washington, D.C., for the inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama, The Navajo Times reports. Despite budget cuts and a decrease in tribal revenues, Navajo Nation Speaker Lawrence T. Morgan said it was important that the Navajo Nation show its support for the new administration. Morgan cited pending issues that have troubled Indian nations, such as funding cuts, health care, education, and issues regarding sovereignty as reasons why the Navajo Nation must support for new administration. The Navajo Times has also extended its coverage of the Jan. 20 inauguration, launching an Inauguration Blog, in partnership with the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian team, which aims to capture American Indians' perspectives on this "historic event". A Navajo Times correspondent will be living blogging about the inauguration from the capital.
