Meet President Nygren
DR. BUU NYGREN
Navajo Nation President
Dr. Buu Nygren is Táchii'nii born for Naa’ádaalts’ósí. His maternal grandfather is Todích'íí'nii and his paternal grandfather is Naa’ádaalts’ósí. He is married to former Arizona State Representative (LD-7) Jasmine Blackwater-Nygren.
Jasmine is Hashtł’ishnii born for Áshįįhí. Her maternal grandfather is Nóóda’í Dine’é Táchii’nii and her paternal grandfather is Bit’ahnii.
Together, they have a newborn and they make their home in Red Mesa (AZ).
No more turning away entrepreneurs: Our job is to give our small business owners every chance to succeed. That begins with a fundamental change in the way we do business on the Navajo Nation. We will eliminate costly and discouraging red-tape imposed by our current Navajo Nation policy, starting with business site leasing reform and digitizing the registration and tax process.
Smart infrastructure will create new opportunities for our homes and businesses to succeed. In the coming years, previously approved funding in electrical, water, and broadband infrastructure will need to be reexamined with leadership that has experience. That's where the Nygren Administration will make Navajo investment dollars go further.
Sustainable Social Services
Veterans services, Missing & Murdered Diné/Indigenous Relatives, Women and Childrens' home support, elders support, and enhanced support for alcohol and substance abuse are all needed for us to move forward as a Nation. We each recognize the need, and the Nygren Administration will put these issues at the forefront of our social services programs.
With my experience at the local levels and with the Nation as a whole, the Nygren Administration will enact and enforce accountability and transparency policies across all parts of the Executive Branch as mandated by Title 2 of the Navajo Nation Code. This will involve a fundamental shift to secure, digitized processes that will result in greater efficiencies in delivering services to the Navajo People.
