TUBA CITY-"I believe that the compact was written the way it was to prevent members of the Navajo Nation from practicing the Sun Dance Religion," Attorney James W. Zion told members of the Navajo Nation Supreme Court on Oct. 30. Freedom of religion was just one of several issues expressed to the Navajo Nation Supreme Court gathered at Greyhills High School. Present were Acting Chief Justice Lorene B. Ferguson and acting associate justices, T.J. Holgate and Irene S. Black.
