Bidtah highly recommends this school to any parents thinking about whereto send their children to school. Bidtah has really enjoyed serving on the board and hopes to continue serving on the board. She came to the Navajo Studies Board after attending a daylong symposium in Window Rock. Since then she planned for and participated in the Crownpoint symposium. She finds that these symposiums offer a lot of personal and academic value to the community and if elected will continue to work on increasing attendance at the symposiums and increasing participation at the symposiums of the many, many varied perspectives of the modern Navajo Nation.

Bidtah Becker – Navajo
Becker, Navajo, will serve a term expiring on May 19, 2018. She replaces Perry R. Eaton, Sugpiaq Alutiiq of Alaksa, who is the president and chief executive officer of Alaska Village Initiatives. As a part of the 12-member Board of Trustees, Becker will formulate policies and bylaws for IAIA, as well as direct strategic planning to ensure sufficient resources.
Opening first as a high school in 1962, Congress reorganized the Institute in 1988 granting the Institute of American Indian Arts charter status as the nation's only fine arts college solely devoted to the arts and cultural tradition of all American Indians. The US President continues to appoint Institute's Board of Trustees today. Preservation and the continuation of the Indigenous arts is preservation and continuation of the first peoples in North America, according to the Congressional charter.
Becker is Assistant Attorney General for the Natural Resources Unit of the Navajo Nation Department of Justice. She also served in the Water Rights Unit of the Navajo Nation Department of Justice from 2004 to 2012, and in the Human Services and Government Unit from 2002 to 2004.
Earlier in her career, Becker taught government courses at the Santa Fe Indian School and was also a Chaplain in Residence at the Georgetown University Campus Ministry. She serves on the Board of the Southwestern Association for Indian Arts and the University of New Mexico School of Law Alumni Board of Directors. Becker received a B.S.F.S. from the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service and a J.D. from the University of New Mexico School of Law.
