Hopi Rangers are tribal police that respond directly to the Hopi Chairman
An election has been scheduled by the Secretary of Interior for January 27, 2011, to allow registered voters of the Hopi Tribe to vote on a document
entitled “Proposed Constitution of the Hopi Tribe.” The Secretary scheduled the election after receiving a Resolution purportedly passed by the
Hopi Tribal Council on August 4, 2010.
The Resolution, H-053-2010 was passed by a vote of eight in favor, six opposed, two abstaining, with the Chairman of the Hopi Tribe also in
attendance. The Chairman votes only in case of a tie, but is a member of the Tribal Council pursuant to the existing Hopi Constitution and By-Laws.
The voting accounts for 15 members of the Tribal Council, but there were actually at least 16 members of the Council on August 4, 2010. One member was
absent from the meeting. The existing Hopi Constitution and By-Laws mandates that any proposed change to the Constitution by approved by a majority
vote of the Council. Resolution
H-053-2010 failed to pass by a majority vote of the Hopi Tribal Council, and therefore cannot be deemed to be a “tribal request” for an election
as required by federal law. Because the Resolution upon which the election has been scheduled is invalid, the election scheduled for January 27, 2011,
will be illegal and invalid. There were seven members of the Hopi Tribal Council that were summarily suspended and removed by Chairman Shingoitewa and
Vice Chairman Honanie on March 1, 2010. Neither Chairman Shingoitewa or Vice Chairman Honanie had any authority under the Hopi Constitution and
By-Laws to suspend, remove, exclude, or otherwise determine the qualifications or right of Plaintiff Representatives to sit as Council members. These
removed members should also be counted in the vote tally for Resolution H-053-2010.
The Proposed Constitution violates provisions of the existing Constitution with regard to the villages of First Mesa and Mishongnovi. The Proposed
Constitution destroys their traditional village organization that is specifically protected by the existing Constitution. The Proposed Constitution
also splits First Mesa into three distinct villages, again in contravention of the existing Constitution. Continue Reading
This is a power grab by a would be Dictator. The Hopi Rangers were sent there to break up any opposition to
this highly their camouflaged Constitution. The People of Hopi need time to decipher what it all means.
