Focus on Navajo Tribal Government.
Navajo Tribal Government is explained in a booklet for ninth grade civics students. The booklet emphasizes basic information drawn from the Navajo Tribal Code and includes a pre-post test and teacher, group and individual activities which stress finding, organizing, and communicating information. The three branches of tribal government--legislative, executive and judicial--are explained. Black and white illustrations and special typographical features help define relationships among the government agencies. Information is presented in outline and question-answer formats with large print. Photographs of past and present tribal chairmen and a detailed map of the Navajo reservation supplement the booklet.
