First Presidency Welcomes President of the Navajo Nation

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints welcomed Navajo Nation President Dr. Buu Nygren and his wife, First Lady Jasmine Blackwater-Nygren, to Temple Square on Thursday, February 15, 2024. The brief gathering was held in the Church Administration Building.

Dr. Nygren was elected 10th president of the Navajo Nation in late 2022. The Arizona native is committed to bringing basic necessities such as water, power, and good roads to every Navajo home. In recent years, the Church of Jesus Christ has helped bring some of those things to the Navajo Nation. In 2022, the Church helped fund the electrification of the Westwater community in southeastern Utah. And in 2021, the faith helped bring water to homes in remote areas of the reservation in New Mexico, Utah, and Arizona.

The Navajo Nation spans portions of Arizona, New Mexico and Utah in the Southwestern United States.
