Former Navajo Nation president Albert Hale, who also served as a state representative and senator, died Tuesday after battling with Covid, the Navajo Nation Council announced on its Facebook page this afternoon. 

Hale, 71, served as his tribe’s assistant attorney general before he was elected president, serving from 1995 to 1998. A Democrat, he represented his district, a massive swath of northern and eastern Arizona in the state Senate from 2004 to 2011 and in the House from 2011 to 2017.

“The Navajo Nation prays for the family and relatives of our leader, Hon. Albert Hale,” Council Speaker Seth Damon said in a statement.” 

As a former president of the Navajo Nation, he is remembered for his service and dedication to the Navajo People, which continued beyond the borders of the Nation when he was called to represent our district in the Arizona Legislature. We recognize his positive contributions to the development of numerous initiatives that have advanced the causes of Navajo People both at home and abroad.”
