President Buu Nygren of the Navajo Nation hosts a press conference on May 28, 2024.

In remarks from the tribal capital of Window Rock, Arizona, Nygren addresses allegations of sexual harassment, sexual assault and workplace mistreatment within the Navajo Nation Office of President and Vice President.

The allegations originate from Vice President Richelle Montoya, who is the first woman in Navajo history to hold the executive leadership position. She was Nygren’s running mate and was installed in office in January 2023.

“I did not disrespect the vice president,” Nygren said in his prepared statement.

Following his remarks, Nygren takes questions from members of the news media.
