Two adults share painful memories

Time can change beliefs. What was once thought to be correct converts easily to a much darker side of society over just a few years.

Examples are plentiful in the world today though we must never lose sight of basic rights and wrongs, regardless of the passage of time.

On March 24, a press conference was held in the offices of Keeler and Keeler to discuss the filing made the same day in the Navajo Nation District Court by attorneys Billy Keeler of Gallup, Craig Vernon and Leander James of Idaho, and Patrick Noaker of Minneapolis.

The attorneys hope that this suit will shine a “spotlight” on sexual abuse of Navajo children within the Lamanite...
