The Navajo Nation welcomes First Lady of the United States Dr. Jill Biden for a historic, two-day visit to the largest reservation in the United States.

Tribal officials hosted Dr. Biden in Window Rock, Arizona, the capital of the Navajo Nation, on April 22, 2021. The program lasted about 90 minutes and featured:

• Host Clara Pratte, Joe Biden presidential campaign tribal engagement leader
• Invocation by Kee Allen Begay, Navajo Nation Council Delegate
• Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez
• Navajo Nation Vice President Myron Lizer
• Navajo Nation Council Speaker Seth Damon
• Navajo Nation Supreme Court Chief Justice JoAnn Jayne
• Performance by Navajo Nation Youth Advisory Council
• Exit invocation Dr. Perphelia Fowler, Navajo Division of Human Resources Director

Prior to the event in Window Rock, Dr. Biden met with Navajo women leaders and discussed a wide range of issues, from education and cancer research to missing and murdered Dine relatives. She referred to the group as “my sister warriors.”

Dr. Biden leaves the Navajo Nation on April 23, following a visit to Hunters Point Boarding School in St. Michaels, Arizona, and a COVID-19 vaccination site on the reservation.
