  • Memorandum of Understanding Between the Navajo Nation Human Rights Commission and the Indian Working Group   pdf
    On July 15, 2013, the Civil Rights Division's Indian Working Group (IWG) and the Navajo Nation Human Rights Commission agreed to a memorandum of understanding establishing a communication process by which civil rights complaints by members of the Navajo Nation can be brought to the IWG. The commission operates as a clearinghouse to address discrimination against citizens of the Navajo Nation. The IWG works to identify civil rights issues that affect Native Americans and to refer, coordinate, support and monitor the division's enforcement and outreach activities involving Native Americans. The MOU promotes and encourages enforcement of federal civil rights laws by increasing communication between the commission and the IWG . The MOU outlines procedures and provides guidance to the commission and IWG in sharing information about civil rights issues. For more information read the July 15, 2013 press release.
