Myron Lizer | Republican National Convention #RNC2020
Posted: Wednesday, August 26, 2020

Myron Lizer, the vice president of the Navajo Nation, addresses the Republican National Convention on August 25, 2020.

“I give this address from the majestic rock spires of Shiprock, Tse Bit’ai or Rock with Wings, as known by our Dine’ People. It is here that many of our ancestral leaders sought to govern and lead a Nation within a Nation," Lizer said via video from the New Mexico portion of the reservation.

"They sought to lead their people into the promises of a better way of life for their children’s children. It is also here where they have not been as successful as the rest of America," Lizer continued. "Our First Nations people are the host people of the land. We are still here. Our Creator placed us here and knew that for such a time as this, we would have an opportunity for an appeal to Heaven.”
