Navajo-Hopi Observer


Rep. Albert Hale, D-St. Michaels (District 7), is a newly appointed member of the Arizona Legislative Council, a nonpartisan committee that provides bill drafting and law review services to all members of both houses of the Legislature.

"Given the opportunity to improve the quality of Arizona legislation is a great honor," Hale said. "It is also a responsibility I take very seriously."

The Legislative Council is a statutory committee of the Legislature chaired in alternate years by the president of the Senate and the speaker of the House of Representatives. It includes six additional members from each chamber. Members of Legislative Council who are elected officials provide assistance to staff, ensuring full participation of the legislative branch.

Hale is an enrolled member of the Navajo Nation. He was born in Ganado and raised in Klagetoh, Ariz. He is Ashiihi (Salt), born for Todichiini (Bitter Water). His maternal grandparents are Hanaghani (Walk About clan). His paternal grandparents are Kiyanii (Tall House clan).

Hale is a 1969 graduate of Fort Wingate High School, a Bureau of Indian Affairs boarding school located east of Gallup, N.M. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Arizona State University, Tempe, Ariz. (1973), and a Juris Doctor degree from the University of New Mexico School of Law, Albuquerque, N.M. (1977), and an honorary Juris Doctor degree from Phoenix School of Law (2012). He is the former President of the Navajo Nation.
