Navajo 'mo marriage ban, back with a vengeance

by Jeremy Hooper

   -4/22/05: Navajo Nation Council votes to enact the Dine Marriage Act of '05, banning gay marriage on the reservation.

-5/1/05: Navajo President Joe Shirley Jr. vetoes the initiative, removing the discriminatory ban.

-6/3/05: The Council usurps Shirley's authority by overriding his veto, thus bringing the gay marriage ban back from the dead.

-6/7/05: Distraught Navajo homo-gays wonder exactly when their right to equality became a political power game for those whose lives would go virtually unaffected should the nuptials be legalized.
