When Indians Disappear II

Apologies for my long absense. I've been going through that particular hell known as the first year of law school. Happily, it is over and I hope to return to blogging regularly.

Much has been going on in Indian Country these past months. Massive Bush budget cuts threaten urban Indian health. A violent stand-off goes on between the Canadian government and the Six Nations people in Caledonia. The Abramoff scandal continues.

I'll be spending the summer working for the Navajo Nation out in Window Rock, the seat of the Navajo government. I'll share my experiences with working for a tribal government and living on the Navajo rez. Plus, if anyone is in the area, leave a comment and we'll go to lunch. I already found a great mutton stew stand.
