While many American citizens were busy celebrating on June 26, members of the Navajo Nation were not able to rejoice. For Navajo tribal members, same-sex marriage is not legal although it is now legal in the United States.
“Once again, we were forgotten on a national level and the fight for marriage equality is not over,” said Alray Nelson, Navajo member and lead organizer for the Coalition for Navajo Equality. “It’s not ended. We’re still here fighting.”
