WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. — The 25th Navajo Nation Council convened at the capital of the Navajo Nation for the opening day of the 2024 Spring Council Session on April 15.

“On behalf of the 25th Navajo Nation Council, I am pleased to welcome everyone to the Navajo Nation and the 2024 Spring Session. During this session the Council will deliberate legislations that will impact infrastructure, chapter projects, committee policies, and department leadership,” 25th Navajo Nation Council Speaker Crystalyne Curley said.

Leading to the opening ceremony, Council Delegate Amber Kanazbah Crotty led a Sexual Assault Awareness Month Walk from the Navajo Nation Museum parking lot to the Navajo Nation Council Chamber.

The Sanders Valley High School provided Color Guard services for the opening day of Spring Session. Ganado High School students sang the Pledge of Allegiance and the National Anthem. Ganado Unified School District Superintendent and former Miss Navajo Dr. Leandra Thomas provided the morning’s invocation.

During the opening session, Council Delegate Lester C. Yazzie took the Oath of Office as the 25th Navajo Nation Council Delegate representing District 6 (Baahaali, Chilchiltah, Manuelito, Red Rock, Rock Springs, Tsayatoh).

On April 16, the Council will host a special recognition ceremony to honor 32 woman delegates who have served throughout the history of the Navajo Nation Council. On April 17 the Council will recognize John Hale, a 100-year-old Navajo Airforce Veteran.
