Navajo Nation Opposes BIA Reorganization and the Removal of Current Navajo BIA Regional Director

WINDOW ROCK —The Navajo Nation strongly objects to the U.S. Department of the Interior’s planned reorganization of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and strongly opposes the reassignment of the Bureau of Indian Affairs Navajo Regional director Sharon Pinto.

The Navajo Nation issued its official position through the unanimous passage of two separate resolutions by the Navajo Nation Council on April 18, citing the failure of the U.S. Department of the Interior to uphold the requirements and principal of government-to-government consultation and the department’s arbitrary and unilateral decision to reassign Pinto, a member of the Navajo Nation, in total disregard for the input, consultation, or concerns of the Navajo Nation.
