Navajo Nation settles dispute over sale of unauthorized 'Navajo' products

 


The Navajo Nation has reached a settlement with a major fashion retailer that sold "Navajo" products without the tribe's authorization.

The terms of the settlement are confidential. But President Russell Begaye said Urban Outfitters Inc., a publicly-traded company (URBN), has agreed to recognize the validity of the tribe's trademarks.

"We expect that any company considering the use of the Navajo name, or our designs or motifs, will ask us for our permission," Begaye said in a press release on Thursday.
