Dine' women are marching today to demand justice for Navajo women, children and elderly, with funding allocations from the male-dominated Navajo Nation Council, and diligence in investigations for murdered and missing Dine'. Dine' women speaking in front of the Navajo Nation Council chambers said they will no longer be silent as victims of violence.
The Diné Sáanii for Justice March is demanding the Navajo Nation President to VETO the $200 K and reallocate funds to Prosecutor's office to create a position so the Navajo Nation will track local state and federal capital crimes committed on the Navajo Nation and develop a tracking system for proper reporting so cases are fully investigated and ready for prosecution and justice.

Navajo Government Focused Spending Elsewhere
By Brenda Norrell
The Navajo government has received $2.5 billion in federal virus relief dollars since June of 2020, but very little has been allocated and distributed to those most in need: Isolated elderly, women, and children, and the sick and dying. The funds are from the CARES Act and American Rescue Plan.
While Dine' elderly were desperate for water, food and home health care, the Navajo government -- Navajo Council and Navajo President -- set its priorities elsewhere.
As Dine' were dying from the coronavirus, the Navajo government made its casinos a priority and allocated $24 million of the federal virus relief funds for its casinos in August of 2020.
Navajo Elderly desperate for food and water
During the same month as the allocation of $24 million in federal virus relief funds to its casinos -- Navajo reporter Sunnie R. Clahchischiligi at Searchlight New Mexico gave voice to desperate Navajo elderly -- who were isolated, sick and disabled :
'Navajo elderly alone, without food in despair' August 2020:
Purchasing Washington D.C. building was a priority
The Navajo government -- Navajo Council and Navajo President -- made purchasing a building in Washington D.C. for $4.8 million a priority during the pandemic. It was purchased in Feb. of 2021.
Navajo Council Committee planned secret purchase of bankrupt Remington Arms during pandemic
In June of 2020, as Dine' deaths from the coronavirus increased, a Navajo Nation Council committee secretly planned to purchase the bankrupt Remington Arms for $300 million, according to documents obtained by Censored News.
Consultants were highly paid, while Dine' were in desperate need of the home delivery of water, food and health care.
In the end, others purchased the weapons manufacturer for far less. It was the second attempt by the Navajo Nation Council to purchase Remington Arms.
Now, Remington Arms is the subject of a lawsuit for manufacturing the weapon that murdered young children at Sandy Hook Elementary in Penn.
While the Navajo government place priorities elsewhere, Dine' volunteers continue to raise their own funds and deliver water barrels, water, fresh food, and cleaning supplies to Dine' homes for those in need, including those sick and dying.
The Navajo government still does not have a uniform plan for the home delivery of food and water to those in need, or uniform home health care for the sick and dying. Dine' still plead for masks, even though masks were stated as a priority in the allocation of federal funds.
Many Dine' lack transportation, or are too sick to travel for groceries and haul water. There are 110 Navajo Nation Council chapters on the Navajo Nation in Arizona, New Mexico and Utah.
Virus Cases Increased Thursday on the Navajo Nation
On Thursday, Sept. 16, 2021, the Navajo Nation reported an increased spread of the virus with 54 new cases, and and two more deaths. The Delta variant is among the causes.
Now, 1,428 Dine' have died from the coronavirus.
Virus spreading through bordertown nursing home and Navajo area schools
Today, the State of New Mexico reports that the coronavirus continues to spread through a bordertown nursing home and Navajo area schools in the Four Corners area. Lawsuits had been filed in December by 24 families citing failed care and neglect in the death of 48 people at Life Care Center nursing home in Farmington, New Mexico.
