Navajo Congressional Candidate Wenona Benally Baldenegro Reacts to Water Settlement Vote

Written by  Native News Network Staff

"Thursday's Navajo Nation Council vote on the proposed water compact marks a new chapter in our dealings with the federal government.

Congressional Candidate Wenona Benally Baldenegro, who seeking the Democratic Party's nomination in Arizona's First Congressional District and is a Navajo Nation citizen, issued the following statement on Friday on the vote by the 22nd Navajo Nation Council:

"Thursday's Navajo Nation Council vote on the proposed water compact marks a new chapter in our dealings with the federal government. Our Nation exercised true tribal sovereignty when the Council voted to affirm the people's decision to oppose the current settlement agreement. In doing so, we upheld the longstanding principle that to be a true Sovereign, a Nation must allow the people to be the ultimate decision makers on issues that will have a lasting impact on the future of our communities. Thursday's vote also re-emphasized to Congress their moral obligation and legal responsibility to support Indian tribal sovereignty and self-governance."

Benally Baldenegro was inside the Navajo Nation Council Chambers on Thursday during the debate and vote.
