Navajo Nation Tribal Code

The Navajo Nation Code contains the general and permanent provisions of the Resolutions of the Navajo Nation Council. The Code is divided into twenty-four titles, each covering a separate subject. They are the approved Navajo Nation Laws and are subject amendments by the Navajo Nation Council.

The Navajo Nation Code has supplemental provisions along with additional enactments, revisions, amendments, and new laws for the Navajo Nation.

These continuous developments of the Navajo Nation Code reflects the continuing progress of the Navajo Nation towards a progressive and strong government.
