  • Hopi lawmakers vote to suspend tribal chairman

    Hopi lawmakers voted unanimously Sept. 22, to suspend tribal Chairman Ben Nuvamsa, but Nuvamsa contends the meeting was illegal and says he won’t recognize the council action.

    The vote comes a week after the council convened under Vice Chairman Todd Honyaoma Sr. and voted to remove five council members and replace them. The council contended that Nuvamsa seated three representatives of First Mesa without certification of the village kikmongwi, or traditional leader, as required by the tribal constitution.
