Voters narrow down field for Navajo Nation's highest office

 

August 29, 2018



This story is a collaboration between National Native News and High Country News.

In Gallup, New Mexico, onlookers lined the streets for the 97th annual Gallup Inter-Tribal Indian Ceremonial. Parades, powwows and other events draw Navajo citizens and tourists to the border town. This year it brought pageant queens in sashes and crowns, Pueblo deer and eagle dancers, and Navajo Nation presidential hopefuls, 18 in total, in full campaign mode.

“I’m not going out there promising things to the people — I need their help,” said Vice President Jonathan Nez as he and his wife pushed a stroller through the night parade. “I know they understand because we have great support from the grassroots.” Nez is running against current Navajo President Russell Begaye, who is seeking a second term in office.
