LGBTQ rights activists are renewing their push for a repeal of the Navajo Nation’s same-sex marriage ban. While the United States Supreme Court declared marriage equality the law of the land, it does not apply on the sovereign Navajo Nation. A bill has been introduced in the 24th Navajo Nation Council to repeal the Diné Marriage Act, which banned same-sex marriages on the nation’s largest tribal land that spans three states. “I don’t feel like discriminating among Navajos — it’s not right within our own way of life,” the bill’s sponsor, Council Delegate Eugene Tso told FOX 13 News. “That’s the reason why I am pushing this.”
