Navajo Hopi Water Rights Settlement Shot Down by Navajo Council, Approved by Hopi

The Navajo Nation shot down a settlement agreement this week that would have settled long-standing claims to water in the Little Colorado River, a tributary to the Colorado River.

But their neighbors, the Hopi Tribe, went the opposite way. The Hopi council, after voting its displeasure at the Senate Bill linked to the settlement, voted to approve the settlement itself, called the Navajo-Hopi Little Colorado River Water Settlement Act of 2012.

It’s doubtful whether the settlement can move forward with the approval of just one of the two tribes. More on this story to come.
