FBI director makes historic visit to Navajo Nation

GALLUP, N.M. (AP) - FBI Director Christopher Wray has met with tribal officials of the largest Indian reservation in the U.S.

The Gallup Independent reports that Wray arrived in the tribal capital in Window Rock, Arizona, on Friday and spoke with Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye and other tribal and federal law enforcement officials, including FBI agents from New Mexico.

FBI spokesman Frank Fisher says Wray's visit to the Navajo Nation was the first by a director.

Wray says the visit, which included a stop at a crime scene, helped give him a look at law enforcement "on the front lines."

Wray said after the meeting he was "very impressed by the partnership" between Navajo and FBI officials.

The Navajo Nation spans parts of Arizona, New Mexico and Utah.
