    Navajo Nation chapter leader fights coal mine purchase

    Last year, Duane “Chili” Yazzie nearly got himself thrown out of the Navajo Tribal Council chambers. Yazzie, who lost his right arm after being shot by a white hitchhiker in 1978, has long led the fight against racially motivated violence against Navajos in border towns. Now, as president of the Shiprock Chapter, a Navajo political entity similar to a county, he has a new target for his activism: His tribe’s purchase of a coal mine from BHP Billiton, one of the world’s largest mining companies.
