Hopi and Navajo Leaders Meet

ICTMN Staff
3/11/11

Working together with a mutual understanding was the message March 8 as Hopi and Navajo leaders came together for a meet and greet in Window Rock, Ariz.

Hopi Tribal Chairman LeRoy Shingoitewa and Navajo Nation President Ben Shelley agreed that they need each other to move forward and asked what could be done to help each other with important issues.

Both leaders were accompanied by members of their staff and they agreed to meet again soon with a planned agenda and strategy for their priorities.

Shelly, as a sign of mutual respect and friendship, presented Shingoitewa with a Pendleton blanket during the meeting.
