'Get off our land!': John McCain chased off reservation by angry Navajo Nation activists


Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) was chased off of Navajo land by a group of activists who are angry over the Gold King Mine spill, which has contaminated river water in the Animas and San Juan Rivers.

According to Native News Online, a delegation including McCain and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) was visiting the Navajo Nation’s capital in Window Rock, Arizona in observance of Navajo Code Talkers Day on Saturday.

Navajo Code Talkers were Navajo Native Americans who worked for U.S. Intelligence during World War II. The Navajo language proved to be too complex for the Axis Powers’ intelligence agencies to decipher, making it the perfect code language for encrypted U.S. communications.
