I can't copy from SFGate articles, so here's a summary:
Chris Deschene is running for President of the Navajo Nation. A tribal law from 1990 requires anyone seeking the tribe's top elected office to be fluent in Navajo. Two of Deschene's primary election opponents filed a grievance alleging that Deschene lied when he attested to speaking the language fluently when he applied to be a candidate. Deschene said he is proficient in speaking Navajo and that he has proven so on the campaign trail, but he refused to take a literacy test or answer questions in court in Navajo. The Navajo Supreme Court ruled that the Navajo language is sacred and cannot be disregarded as a qualification for the presidency, and an administrative court judge says he has no option but to remove Deschene's name from the ballot, which might delay the election which is currently scheduled for November 4th. Deschene said he believes the issue is broader than fluency. He said the Navajo Supreme Court also must consider the people who voted for him in the primary, and a traditional law that says Navajos have the right to choose their leaders.
Do you think he should have to follow the current law and show fluency in Navajo to be on the ballot? Or should the "traditional law" prevail and the Navajo people be allowed to decide on election day?
