A Navajo Chapter is like a county organization. The Navajo Nation is divided into Regions, and each Region is divided into Chapters. The Bodaway-Gap Chapter is located in the Western Region.  Anything involving land or the long-term encumbrance of land, such as leases or operating agreements, must first be approved by the Chapter in which the land resides.  Once approved, the Chapter resolution is forwarded to the central Navajo Nation tribal government in Window Rock, AZ.  There it must be approved by the Finance Committee to the extent it involves tribal funding or revenue and the Natural Resources Committee.  Final approval is by the Navajo Nation Council and
