Tonalea homes get electricity


TONALEA, Ariz. - For Bennett Freeze Area families, T'áá hó ájítéego or self-reliance, is more than governmental rhetoric, it is a way of life for the Navajo people.

On March 4, Navajo Nation Vice President Jonathan Nez traveled to Tonalea to celebrate completion of the White Mesa power line project, which brought electricity to 16 families who have been immobilized by the federal government's policy to ban development in the area since the mid-1960s.
