Melanie Yazzie – Unlimited Limitations: The Navajos’ Winters Rights Deemed Worthless in the 2012 Navajo-Hopi Little Colorado River Settlement

This essay was written in May 2012 to provide a critical and research-based assessment of the NHLCRS. At the time, the climate of political bargaining and persuasion that dominated public debate about the Settlement compromised the availability of such information to the Navajo public or tribal council. Along with a multiply authored editorial published in the Navajo Times (May 17, 2012) and the Navajo-Hopi Observer (May 22, 2012), the essay was written for and furnished to each of the twenty-four delegates of the Navajo Nation Tribal Council for consideration prior to its vote on the Settlement.
