Navajo commission holds hearings on sacred sites

St. Michaels, Arizona (AP) July 2010

The Navajo Nation Human Rights Commission is holding public hearings to gather input on how to preserve and protect sacred sites.

The first of five meetings was held July 20 in Crownpoint, N.M. and Navajo citizens will have other opportunities to voice concerns or submit written comments in Fort Defiance, Chinle, Tuba City and Shiprock, N.M.

The commission was formed by the Navajo Nation Council and has held 25 public hearings since 2008 on race relations between Navajos and non-Navajos. The commission says one of the most common topics has been sacred sites.

The commission will compile the testimony on sacred sites and submit a report with recommendations to the Tribal Council.
