Documents reveal theft of Navajo water rights and secret government by non-Navajos in key Navajo Nation positions — working in collusion with dirty coal

“This is all evidence of the ‘shadow government’ at work. The non-Navajo controlled ‘secret government’ that ultimately rules us.” —Ed Becenti, grassroots Dine’
Here are three important documents. This is a fight for the very soul of our tribal government. The first is from Bennie Williams (who was recently forced to retire as Water Code Administrator by Tariq.) It his statement of concern to the Resources Committee about the harassment and retaliation over 2.5 years from mostly Najam Tariq, who basically destroyed Bennie physically, mentally, and emotionally.
The second is an August 8 memo from Jack Utter to Fred White and Katherine Benally about the continuing contempt of Tariq against the Resources Committee’s directives.
The third, dated for next Monday the 12th of August, is Fred White’s memo on how he’s going to fix the problems arising from the unlawful takeover of the Water Code by Tariq 2.5 years ago. He’s taking responsibility for the Water Code in his office, and appointing Tariq to be Water Code supervisor. The word is that if Fred succeeds with this bogus memo, Tariq is going to serve termination papers on Jack Monday or shortly thereafter.
This is all evidence of the ‘shadow government’ at work. The non-Navajo controlled ‘secret government’ that ultimately rules us through People like Pollack, etc. Tariq is their most visible agent. No respect for the Navajo people, for our caring elected leaders, for right over wrong, it’s just about abuse, exploitation, and control.
Tariq is an alleged thief and exploiter of the Nation. He controls the DWR like his own little Pakistan. The ‘shadow government’ has to be brought to a halt here, as a lesson to Pollack, Hoover, Navajo Generating Station, Salt River Project, Jon Kyl, and others. The Navajos are going to govern themselves, not the infiltrators into our tribal government.
