LeRoy Shingoitewa: Hopi Tribe against Grand Canyon project Tuesday, February 12, 2013 Filed Under: Opinion LeRoy N. Shingoitewa is the chairman of the Hopi Tribe. Our beautiful state has many points of pride, but none compare to our namesake, the Grand Canyon State. One of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the Grand Canyon attracts nearly 5 million tourists a year. But the true value of the Grand Canyon goes far beyond that of a tourist attraction; it is a place of history, culture and is a link to the people of yesteryear, spanning dozens of generations.

Navajo Hopi Water Rights Settlement Shot Down by Navajo Council, Approved by Hopi - The Navajo Nation shot down a settlement agreement this week that would have settled long-standing claims to water in the Little Colorado River, a tributary to the Colorado River. But their neighbors, the Hopi Tribe, went the opposite way. The Hopi council, after voting its displeasure at the Senate Bill linked to the settlement, voted to approve the settlement itself, called the Navajo-Hopi Little Colorado River Water Settlement Act of 2012. It’s doubtful whether the settlement can move forward with the approval of just one of the two tribes. More on this story to come. - Read more -
