Indian Country News Bureau / Community Calendar Updated 9/17 @ 1600


This is ___________ with KUYI’s Indian Country News Bureau 5pm Thursday September 17, 2020) update:

Today is the fourth day of the Little Colorado River adjudication trials down in Phoenix;

The Hopi Tribe is in front of the Superior Court of Maricopa County arguing for our ancestral water rights to be upheld;

Chairman Nuvangyouma has issued the following update on the first phase of the trial…

<<<< play “LCR91620” >>>>


That was Chairman Nuvangyouma, recorded Tuesday SEP 16th, speaking about this week’s Little Colorado River trial;

the phone number to listen in on this week’s Little Colorado River trial is: (855) 506 - 9695

The access code is: 357 264 pound;


For more information you may call the Office of the Chairman at 734 - 3102


KUYI's Indian Country News Bureau reports the Hopi Tribe has reinterred twenty of our ancestors and funerary items in Colorado, first stolen from Mesa Verde National Park in 1891;

On Saturday September 12th representatives from Hopi joined those from the Pueblos of Acoma, Zia, and Zuni to receive our ancestors in Durango;

On the morning of Sunday September 13th, our ancestors were reinterred to their home in the Park;

Cliff Spencer, superintendent of Mesa Verde National Park, told the Colorado Sun that the final resting place is an area used before: once in 2006 and most recently in 2018;

He said the remote location is a place, quote, “visitors don’t normally see, far in the backcountry.”

A Swedish-Finnish researcher stole the ancestors from Mesa Verde in 1891 and was arrested after his first attempt to export them;

He was later released because no existing U.S. laws were broken;

After the sacred items found their way to Sweden, the researcher died of tuberculous just shy of his 27th birthday;

Our ancestors eventually were transferred to the National Museum of Finland;


The Hopi Cultural Preservation Office began consultation with that Museum in 2016;

Over the course of two years, CPO conducted an inventory of the six-hundred-and-fourteen item collection;

this was followed by repatriation talks between the US government and Finland;

in 2019 the Hopi Tribal Council and the All Pueblo Council of Governors passed resolutions supporting repatriation; an official state visit from the President of Finland to Washington D.C. later followed leading to government to government negotiations, then to an August 2020 agreement to return our ancestors;

Vice Chairman Clark Tenakhongva said, in part:

we, quote, “...are thankful to everyone involved in ensuring our ancestors were returned to their rightful home and are afforded the respect all human people deserve: being allowed to rest in peace;

...the return of our family both past and present is something to be celebrated…”

Governor Brian Vallo of the Pueblo of Acoma stated the process was, quote:

“safe and culturally-appropriate” and he hopes museums with “similar collections will become motivated to engage in... nation-to-nation collaboration that results in repatriation...”

Our ancestors are protected under 1990’s Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act if they are in the United States, but those in international collections aren’t covered by that law;

this repatriation by Finland could motivate other countries to return stolen patrimony;


A current federal bill, 2017's Safeguard Tribal Objects of Patrimony, or STOP Act, is awaiting passage;

If approved, it would double existing penalties on those who rob graves or traffic in stolen items;

It would also confirm the president’s authority to enter into agreements with foreign leaders to repatriate items to Tribes.

Indian Country News Bureau / Community Calendar Friday July 16, 2020 Updated 7/16 @ 1900


This is ___________ with KUYI’s Indian Country News Bureau 7am Friday July 17) update:


The Navajo Nation announced that Family Dollar has withdrawn their liquor license applications for TUba City & St. Michaels stores;

Navajo Nation President Jonathon Nez said “Navajo people took a strong position to oppose the liquor licenses and we had the support of Coconino County and Apache County... the applications posed a direct threat to the health and safety of the residents of St. Michaels, Tuba City, and the entire Navajo Nation;

Our People have a long, ongoing battle with alcohol and the devastation that alcoholism causes to our families and communities;

Consumption of alcohol has contributed to increased incidents of domestic violence and other criminal activity, motor vehicle fatalities, and deaths caused by exposure to extreme weather conditions.”

The Navajo Times reports that the Tuba City Family Dollar is on an island of private land in unincorporated Coconino County;

In 2001 the Navajo Nation Council permitted alcohol sales in the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area & in 2008, the council amended Tribal code again to authorize alcohol at Navajo.

Listeners, kwah’kway for tuning in to our Hopi Tribal Council simulcast. We appreciate Council and staff for permitting these historic live broadcasts;

What you hear is the exact same audio quality Council members on the Zoom call are experiencing;

We believe a Tribal laptop is feeding audio signal to the Zoom call from its internal microphone - meaning it might not be patched into the in-chambers-Council members' mics;

In addition, numerous Council members - both in chambers & on Zoom - don't have their mics muted while others are speaking, thus detracting from the signal;

We appreciate your understanding and again thank Council, staff & especially Hopi Tribe’s IT department for their work…

Listeners, kwah’kway for tuning in to our Hopi Tribal Council simulcast. We appreciate Council and staff for permitting these historic live broadcasts;

What you hear is the exact same audio quality Council members on the Zoom call are experiencing;

We believe a Tribal laptop is feeding audio signal to the Zoom call from its internal microphone - meaning it might not be patched into the in-chambers-Council members' mics;

In addition, numerous Council members - both in chambers & on Zoom - don't have their mics muted while others are speaking, thus detracting from the signal;

We appreciate your understanding and again thank Council, staff & especially Hopi Tribe’s IT department for their work…

We believe a Tribal laptop is feeding audio signal to the Zoom call from its internal microphone - meaning it might not be patched into the in-chambers-Council members' mics;

In addition, numerous Council members - both in chambers & on Zoom - don't have their mics muted while others are speaking, thus detracting from the signal;

With the highest single day increase in positive COVID-19 cases in Arizona the Hopi Tribe’s Department of Health & Human Services issued the following statement in conjunction with its release of updated data:

Arizona is now one of the worst coronavirus hotspots in the world & is not taking aggressive steps to fight COVID-19;

Hopi-Tewa communities need to take the responsibility in fighting the virus;

every individual needs to make wearing a face covering a daily habit;

washing your hands often with soap and water and using hand sanitizer should be constant & staying home as much as possible are the ideal daily habits: Bouncing from house to house, visiting friends and families in-person is contributing to the rise in cases

In addition the DHHS reminds the Hopi community that spreading misinformation or stigmatizing people who’ve tested positive hurts recovery efforts; they’ve released the following guidance:

You don’t get COVID-19 because you did something wrong

You don’t get COVID-19 because you did not follow Hopi traditions

When a home is under isolation don’t label/stigmatize them, they are taking precautions and following guidelines to prevent the spread COVID-19 to others

Wearing a face cloth mask, doesn’t mean someone is sick with COVID-19, they are following guidelines to protect themselves as well as you.

Listeners, kwah’kway for tuning in to our Hopi Tribal Council simulcast. We appreciate Council and staff for permitting these historic live broadcasts;

What you hear is the exact same audio quality Council members on the Zoom call are experiencing;

We believe a Tribal laptop is feeding audio signal to the Zoom call from its internal microphone - meaning it might not be patched into the in-chambers-Council members' mics;

In addition, numerous Council members - both in chambers & on Zoom - don't have their mics muted while others are speaking, thus detracting from the signal;

We appreciate your understanding and again thank Council, staff & especially Hopi Tribe’s IT department for their work…

What you hear is the exact same audio quality Council members on the Zoom call are experiencing;

We believe a Tribal laptop is feeding audio signal to the Zoom call from its internal microphone - meaning it might not be patched into the in-chambers-Council members' mics;

In addition, numerous Council members - both in chambers & on Zoom - don't have their mics muted while others are speaking, thus detracting from the signal;

Listeners, kwah’kway for tuning in to our Hopi Tribal Council simulcast. We appreciate Council and staff for permitting these historic live broadcasts;

What you hear is the exact same audio quality Council members on the Zoom call are experiencing;

We believe a Tribal laptop is feeding audio signal to the Zoom call from its internal microphone - meaning it might not be patched into the in-chambers-Council members' mics;

In addition, numerous Council members - both in chambers & on Zoom - don't have their mics muted while others are speaking, thus detracting from the signal;

We appreciate your understanding and again thank Council, staff & especially Hopi Tribe’s IT department for their work…

ICNB 6-4-2020 Report [edited 1645 6/4/2020]:


This is _____________ with KUYI’s Indian Country News Bureau (8am Thursday June 4) COVID-19 pandemic update:

While KUYI’s on-air computer has been fixed, our production computer is now being repaired…

This will limit our ability to air new audio recordings and content;

Please check our facebook page for updates; We thank you for your patience!


KUYI’s Indian Country News Bureau has a report on yesterday’s police activity atop First Mesa:

Hopi Law Enforcement Services Chief Virgil J. Pinto said officers responded to shots fired early Wednesday morning;

There were no injuries;

Two individuals were contacted & arrested on an outstanding warrant, drug paraphernalia & other charges;

Shots were fired from the mesa top towards the open desert area, but not at any individual or property;

An investigation is ongoing;


Almost six months since the first COVID-19 case was reported, the Indian Health Service has announced it’s forming a “Critical Care Response Team’”

The agency established to uphold the federal trust responsibility for providing effective health care to Tribes made the announcement on Tuesday;

It states: “expert physicians, registered nurses, and other healthcare professionals [will] ...as needed... provide urgent lifesaving medical care to COVID-19 patients [at] IHS or tribal hospitals;

The team will provide “...clinical education... treat patients, expand capacity and train… health care professionals… [and] ...can be at the bedside of the patient within 24-48 hours notice… ”

It is unclear at this time how much access local IHS facilities will have to the team or what their plans are to utilize it...;


Some Arizona law enforcement agencies have stated they will not enforce Arizona Governor Doug Ducey’s curfew; Holbrook, Winslow & Williams police departments, as well as Navajo County Sheriff’s Office & others say they won’t enforce it;
