History is made. The Navajo Nation Council uplifts Diné Pride Week & supports the LGBTQ+ Community

The 24th Navajo Nation Council made history by passing Legislation -140-20, proclaiming the last week of June as Diné Pride Week for the largest Sovereign Nation in the United States. Sponsored by Budget and Finance Committee member Nathaniel Brown, the legislation was approved 12-9 by the Naabik’iyati Committee and then by a vote of 14-8 by the tribal council today.

Kayenta Council Delegate, Nathaniel Brown, was the champion of the legislation alongside his co-sponsors, Speaker Seth Damon and Delegate Carl Slater. Diné Equality recognizes Brown as a champion for the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and two-spirit community.
