The $1.5 Million distribution, along with Navajo Gaming's previous $6 Million distribution, reflects the hard work of 1,200 Navajo Gaming team members, 83% of which are Navajo. "We are honored to fulfill our obligations and make these distributions, which are to benefit the Navajo people," states Derrick Watchman, Navajo Gaming CEO. "Navajo Gaming is strong and growing with four properties that are vital parts of the community and provide high-quality jobs, stability and hope for 1,200 families on the Reservation and across New Mexico and Northern Arizona." According to Navajo Nation law, The Navajo Nation Gaming Enterprise distributes revenue into the Navajo Nation Gaming Distribution Fund. From there, the Navajo Nation Council determines application of this $1.5 Million Distribution and previous $6 Million Distribution to individual chapters for needs such as infrastructure, housing, economic development and education. Watchman added, "In addition to expressing gratitude to the Council, President, Speaker and our host Chapters for their support of Navajo Gaming, we wish to thank our 1,200 team members that donate their time and talent to make our communities stronger and improve our people's lives as mandated by their vote for Navajo Gaming more than a decade ago."
