Australian Aboriginal Leaders Visit Native American Navajo Nation

In June, Native American Navajo Nation officials welcomed several of Australia's most notable indigenous aboriginal leaders to the Navajo reservation. They met to discuss international advocacy and promote international laws for indigenous peoples. During the meeting, Lawrence Morgan explained the Navajo Nation government, its issues, and the three-branch system under which the Navajo Nation operate. "It was exciting to have these discussions with our visitors," said Morgan. "We have learned that as indigenous peoples, we face many of the same issues." The Australian aboriginal leaders included Tanya Hosch from the National Indigenous Youth Movement of Australia.
