Women in Power in the Navajo Nation

As the USA gears up for the November 2nd elections, there will be history made amongst America’s Natives if Lynda Lovejoy has anything to say about it. While most Americans & the media are focused on the incendiary battles between Democrats, Republicans & the Tea Party; the Navajo nation which is the largest Native American tribe made up of constituents from Arizona, New Mexico and Utah will be reexamining & battling religious & cultural tradition to make history by electing their first ever female president. Many Americans probably know very little about its Natives let alone the fact that they have their own elected government, but hopefully a historical moment will bring America’s much needed focus & attention to its Natives.
