This is according to Bates, who told the Navajo Times Wednesday that the first public hearing about how the tribe should allocate the $554 million is tentatively scheduled for Oct. 6 in Chinle.
“It’s a considerable amount of money,” Bates said. “The question is how will the Navajo Nation use these dollars?”
To find out how, Bates said, the Office of the Speaker, as directed by the Navajo Nation Council’s Naabik’íyáti’ Committee, will host these public hearings with the Navajo people.
Along with educating the public of the funds, Bates explained that the Navajo people would also receive lessons on the tribal budget process.
