Navajo chapter eyes investigation of Shiprock Fair
Members of the Shiprock Chapter of the Navajo Nation voted to request an investigation into the Shiprock Navajo Fair.

A resolution passed by the chapter cites alleged improprieties at the fair. The chapter also says it is owed $32,000 by the fair's organizers.

The annual event draws thousands of people to Shiprock, New Mexico. But The Farmington Daily Times said there is no tribal, state or federal oversight of the fair, whose annual income has been reported to be around $4 million.
