Navajo beneficiaries not receiving checks
Facebook Twitter Email

Some Navajo beneficiaries are not receiving oil and gas royalty checks, The Farmington Daily-Times reports.

Calvert Garcia, president of the Nageezi chapter government, told the paper that tribal members on the eastern edge of the Navajo Nation have been denied their money. They were among the group that was cut off when the Department of Interior shut down its trust fund systems in December 2001.

Most of them were restarted last spring but there have been scattered problems. Tex Hall, president of the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI), told Indianz.Com that beneficiaries on his reservation in North Dakota have not received money since November.
