Navajo Nation opposes BIA reorganization, regional director reassignment

FARMINGTON — The Navajo Nation is opposed to plans by the U.S. Department of the Interior to reorganize the Bureau of Indian Affairs and reassign Navajo Regional Director Sharon Pinto.

Members of the Navajo Nation Council expressed their opposition in two pieces of legislation they approved this week, stating the Interior Department's decisions were made without tribal consultation and the decision to reassign Pinto lacked input, consultation and concerns from the tribe.
