Navajo Nation celebrates sovereignty with holiday

Window Rock, Arizona (AP) May 2010

Navajo Nation employees had April 26 off in recognition of the tribe’s sovereignty.

The Tribal Council set aside a day 25 years ago to celebrate the tribe’s right to govern itself. That was the year the U.S. Supreme Court recognized the Navajo Nation’s right to impose taxes without approval from the federal government.

The holiday now is celebrated the fourth Monday in April.

Navajo President Joe Shirley Jr. says the concept of sovereignty is simple to Navajos – asserting one’s independence.
