Letter: A step in the right direction

The latest proposed revisions to the Hopi Constitution is a step in the right direction. In my opinion, it will prevent some politicians who sit on the Hopi Tribal Council from using the existing Hopi Constitution for personal political gain, which has happened in the last three years of turmoil.By setting up four independent branches of Hopi government, the Council will no longer repeat what happened when the anti-Ben Nuvamsa group managed to take our civil rights away by nullifying the 2007 Special Elections that Nuvamsa won; take over the Chairmanship; and, set up an Interim Government when Nuvamsa was forced to resign.
