The Diyin Nohooka Diné Be’lii group rode from all four directions to the Council Chambers in Window Rock.
The Ha’a’aah (East) came from the Crownpoint area; Shádi’ááh (South) rode from the Houck area; E’e’ah (West) made the trek from Tuba City; and Náhookos (North) began their ride in Shonto.
Leland Grass, of Shonto, Ariz., who led the western group, believes that the proposed act would inevitably take away grazing permits that older generations have had for years.
