  • Disgusted with Navajo Nation process

    Dear Editor,

    I am writing you this email to express my outright disgust with the Navajo Nation. I was born and raised on the Navajo Nation. I am half Navajo on my mom’s side. I was brought up to be very proud of the Navajo reservation and it’s people.

    That was until I tried to go to college. I started my college career at Dine College in Tsaile AZ, in 1987. I didn’t have a problem with financial aid then, since I am Navajo and it is a Navajo college. But, when I did try to go to other universities (Colorado & ASU), I got almost no financial help from the Navajo Tribe. I submitted all of the required/requested paper work, certificates, CIB, transcripts, etc, and they still denied me any type of help.

    When the Navajo Code Talkers served in World War II, using the Navajo language to baffle the Japanese and helping to win the war, they had no idea that decades later a Japanese man would make their story known to the world.
