You can't spell assimilation without a-s-s.

Same-sex marriage ban becomes law

"Navajos debate traditions and clanship beliefs for the modern era

"WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. - Increasing the debate on modern-day implications for Navajo traditions, the Navajo Nation Council's June 3 override of the Navajo president's veto on a same-sex marriage ban means the law will go into effect on the Navajo Nation."

I'm not Dine', don't know jack about their internal politics, and of course respect their sovereignty, but this is just sad. Like the overwhelming majority of tribes, historically the Dine' did not discriminate against or reject homosexuals. Fuck.
