American Indians on reservations live under the worst housing conditions in the United States. (Read my 1997 article on these issues.)
Arizona Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick is holding a congressional hearing in the Navajo Nation capital city of Window Rock Arizona to discuss Indian housing issues.
California Rep. Maxine Waters will join the hearing at the Navajo Nation Museum.
Kirkpatrick has sponsored legislation that would allow more disabled American Indian veterans and their families to receive housing assistance.
