NAVAJO NATION PRESS RELEASE:
The Navajo Veterinary & Livestock Program is encouraging horse owners to make sure that their horses are vaccinated against West Nile Virus. West Nile vaccinations should be an annual vaccination along with your spring 5-way vaccination and deworming schedule especially since WNV is endemic (naturally in the environment) since it arrived to the Navajo Nation in 2003. West Nile, the disease, is spread by the bite of an infected mosquito carrying the virus, which may develop into a brain inflammation disease in humans, horses and birds.
Presently, the Navajo Nation has one (1) area of where a positive horse has been confirmed with the West Nile Virus: the Chinle Valley. This animal was never vaccinated against West Nile. The animal began showing signs of the disease on July 21, the disease progressed until the horse was unable to balance and was euthanized at the Chinle Veterinary Clinic, July 23, 2013. Laboratory confirmation of West Nile virus was received August 1, 2013.
The NNVLP urges the public to take precautions against the bite of mosquitoes; once again the “Fight the Bite” prevention for people and horses is stressed. Prevent mosquitoes from breeding by decreasing standing water around your home and stables. Use insect repellants to prevent bites to horses and make sure all horses have WNV vaccinations in place. People should utilize your DEET products to prevent mosquito bites and limit early morning and evening hours outside when mosquito activity is the highest; wear protective clothing if you need to be outside during these times.

PAGE HIGH SCHOOL TO HOST ONE-TIME SCREENING OF NAVAJO-LANGUAGE STAR WARS™
Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope to be shown Tuesday, NOVEMBER 19, 2013, 6pm-8pm
The much-awaited Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope dubbed in the Navajo language will soon be hitting the road to screen in select cities across the country. So far, this version of the movie has only been shown on or near the Navajo Nation. The excitement over the initial release this past summer has carried across the country. Many groups, not just Native American audiences, have expressed interest in seeing this iconic film with a new twist. The Navajo Nation Museum took the lead on this venture coordinating and fundraising until the movie was finished. In the end, Lucasfilm, 20th Century Fox, and Deluxe joined the effort to help audiences experience the film in the Navajo language. The majority of funding came from within the Navajo Nation itself as the Parks and Recreation Department stepped up to the plate as the premiere sponsor. All of the recording was done locally at Native-owned Knifewing Studios in Gallup, NM.
Locations were chosen primarily on the basis of their Native American population. As part of the arrangement with Lucasfilm and 20th Century Fox, all screenings will be free; however, certain venues may require an RSVP. Please check with the local venues listed for details about screening requirements.

WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. – Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly released a statement today about the status of the Navajo Nation government since the Oct. 1 shutdown of the U.S. Government.
“Nearly all of our offices remain open for the Navajo Nation government. Although many of our programs receive federal funds, our government is open and continues to serve the Navajo people, including all Navajo Nation Tribal Parks.
However, we urge lawmakers in Washington to come to a solution because the Navajo Nation will eventually begin to experience effects if the shutdown continues.
I assure the Navajo people that we are continually preparing ourselves for future situations that may arise from the federal government closure. As president, I have continually pushed for fiscal responsibility because we cannot always depend on the federal government to solve issues we can solve for ourselves.
The federal government shutdown is an opportunity for the Navajo Nation to begin to exercise true sovereignty. Though we need our federal partners to assist us, we can continue to establish and practice governmental policies that strengthen the Navajo Nation.
The Navajo Nation recognizes that many people have been planning vacations to experience America’s great outdoors. Although all U.S. National Parks are closed due to the federal government shutdown, I extend a special invitation to family vacationers and visitors to experience the beauty of the Navajo Nation in our tribal parks in Northern Arizona and the Four Corners region. Come experience the majestic scenery of Monument Valley, the vibrant colors of Antelope Canyon, or experience one of our casinos hotel resorts. We welcome all visitors to the Navajo Nation.”
