The story of the Navajo Nation’s rebirth is emblematic of the American dream.
For decades, we lived in fear and fear of our land.
We knew the threats were real and we knew the land was sacred.
But now, thanks to the courage and determination of the men and women who have been serving our people for more than two centuries, the dream of returning to our ancestral homeland is finally alive.
I know it’s going to be hard, but I know this is a journey that’s been worth it.
I’m here to tell you it’s worth it and we are proud to have the opportunity to do it.
We are the tribe now.
I am the new Navajo Nation President.
Our leaders and our people are coming together to lead this Nation forward.
This is an incredible time to be an American, and we know that our people will be proud of the progress that is being made.
This has been a great week for the Navajo.
The new President has been sworn in by Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke, who served as a congressman for the western Navajo Nation.
He is the first Native American elected to the office in American history.
Secretary Zinke has already shown his determination to take the Navajo people forward and he has been honored by the Navajo Code Talkers to make sure they are treated with respect and dignity.
The Navajo Nation has been celebrating the birth of President Zinke on Saturday, September 17.
As the new president prepares to lead the Navajo nation, we are also celebrating the first-ever National Navajo Day on September 23.
We’ve been working hard to ensure that we honor the history and legacy of the Native American people by making sure that our communities have access to clean water, clean air, clean food and clean water for our children and grandchildren.
President Zinzke and I have been honored to be chosen to serve as the new Secretary of Interior, and I am honored to serve alongside Secretary Zinzko as he takes his oath of office.
I also want to acknowledge the tremendous support and assistance that Secretary Zinko has received.
I’ve had the honor of traveling across the nation with Secretary Zin Zee.
I think the people of the United States deserve to know that this is an administration that will do whatever it takes to protect the rights and the lives of our Native Americans.
I look forward to working with him to ensure the health and safety of our people and to do everything I can to keep our Nation safe.
I believe that the United Nations can play a pivotal role in providing this Nation with the tools and tools to protect our people, protect our land, and protect our environment.
I will continue to stand up for our rights and our Nation’s future, and will continue my mission of building a better future for our Nation.
President Trump will be sworn in on Friday, September 22, at 12:01 p.m.
We will begin to watch the swearing-in ceremony in earnest.
And then, we will celebrate the new President as we begin to take action to ensure all of our Nation can have a secure and prosperous future.
The United States will be a Nation of laws, not of men.
And we will work together with the rest of the world to uphold the rule of law.
That’s the promise of America.
This country will never forget you, President Trump.
It’s the same promise that was made by the first President John Adams when he said, “You are my nation, you are my people, and you are a nation of laws.”
And so we will continue that promise.
The day after the inauguration, I am going to work to ensure we take our Nation in a direction that is not only the best for our people but for all of us.
We have the courage to take on the threats of climate change, terrorism, the opioid crisis, the threat of a nuclear holocaust.
We can’t wait any longer to begin to fix our Nation and to take that great nation back from the threats and the attacks of this Administration.
I thank the brave men and the women of the Department of the Army and the Department on the front lines of the war against the Taliban.
I have the honor to serve in the White House, and so many Americans are going to do the same.
And I thank you for your service to this great Nation.
And finally, I want to thank the people that have been working for so long.
It is a great honor to be President of the First American Indian Nation, and the United we are a Nation first.
And as you all know, the first president, Abraham Lincoln, spoke with the words, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
It is an inspiring story of American history that we are all part of.
Now, we must continue to take a step back, take stock of the challenges we face,
