Honoring Cleon Kimberling March 11, 2014

"Dr. Kimberling received his Bachelor’s Degree and DVM at Colorado State University and then earned a Masters of Public Health from the University of Minnesota. Since then, he has devoted his time to Colorado State University students and those in the agriculture industry in Colorado. His vocation has allowed him to focus on herd health management of dairy livestock, range beef cattle and range sheep. His expertise in range sheep management is unrivaled and has benefitted many, many producers. Dr. Kimberling’s work has taken him from the high mountains and plains in Colorado, to the Navajo Nation and to over 15 countries around the world."

Ann Kirkpatrick, D-AZ
"Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly said—quote—“The current piecemeal approach house republicans are using to fragment tribal communities from the rest of the country is insulting. Tribal communities, like the majority of Americans, want a comprehensive resolution.”"
Honoring Michael Taylor Riggs June 14, 2013
Barbara Lee, D-CA
"Born on November 10, 1970, Mr. Riggs descended from a long line of Navajo clans and grew up on the Navajo Nation in a remote area of northern Arizona. After starting out as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) at a hospital in Tuba City, AZ, Mr. Riggs began attending Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. In the early 1990s, while studying and working part-time at the Northern Arizona Area Health Education Center (AHEC), Mr. Riggs’ passion for education, policy development and disease prevention took flight. His bold idea to form an HIV/AIDS prevention outreach program targeted at Native American men was unconventional for the time, but won the support and respect of his colleagues."
