The Navajo Nation has a storied history with the United States government that has resulted in a government-to-government relationship between the two sovereigns. This relationship finds its foundation in our sacred Treaty of 1868. Navajo leaders since then have been meeting with Washington, DC officials as sovereigns. As a result of this government-to-government relationship, the Navajo Nation has found it necessary to continue the Navajo Nation's presence in Washington, DC and thus officially opened the Navajo Nation Washington Office in 1984. The NNWO monitors and analyzes congressional legislation, disseminates congressional and federal agencies’ information, develops strategies and decisions concerning national policies and budgets that affect the Navajo Nation. It also assists the Navajo Nation in developing legislative language and testimony. The NNWO is located on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, and serves as the Navajo Nation's advocate with Congress, the White House, and federal agencies. Since August 1984 our office has served as an extension of the Navajo Nation Government to represent our concerns to the Federal Government and Agencies in Washington, D.C.

Two years ago Mary F. Calvert first visited the Navajo Nation to learn about access to cancer treatment on the Navajo Nation. Mary returned to Navajo many times later and broadened her story to encompass uranium exposure on the Navajo Nation. Mary is a DC based photojournalist twice nominated for a Pulitzer prize and the story that many Navajo families and officials told her is the headline in today's Yahoo News:https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/toxic-legacy-of-uranium-mines-in-navajo-nation-confronts-new-interior-secretary-deb-haaland-121534812.html

My beloved father, David Earl Patterson, Sr. and Navajo Code Talker passed away this morning after losing a battle with pnuemonia and a fall that caused a sub-dural hematoma (brain bleed). He was brave until the very end, but was just not strong enough to battle any more. We will all miss you and cherish you for all of eternity. You were my father, hero, mentor and bowling partner, I will love you forever and always................
