10:00 a.m. Meeting with Dartmouth Native American Students
11:00 a.m. Tailgate Reception at Signma Alpha Epsilon House
12:00 noon Game: Dartmouth vs Cornell

There may be some who live in the area who would make plans to be at
Dartmouth to
question McCain's role in the Big Mountain Relocation policies.

An example of his involvement is his letter to Janet Reno and Bruce Babbitt
urging them to expidite the relocation.

The Honorable Janet Reno
Attorney General
U.S. Department of Justice
Constitution Avenue & 10th Street, N.W.
Washington. D.C. 20530

The Honorable Bruce Babbitt
U.S. Department of Interior
1849 C Street, N.W.
Washington, D.C. 20240

Dear Attorney General Reno and Secretary Babbitt


I write to urge the Departments of Justice and Interior to proceed carefully
in the coming months to settle the relocation of remaining Navajo families
in a timely and orderly process. My paramount concern is to ensure the
safety and wall-being of these Navajo families and the fair resolution
to outstanding issues following the enactment of the Settlement Agreement
for the Navajo and Hopi people.

I understand that the Office of Navajo and Hopi Indian Relocation sent
90-day notices on January 25, 1999 to the remaining Navajo families who
have not signed the Accommodation Agreement. The end of this 90-day period
is quickly approaching and I have not received any further notice that
the remaining families have agreed to sign onto the Settlement Agreement
or applied far relocation benefits. I ask that you submit in writing to
me the actions that the Department of Justice will take in the coming months
to ensure compliance with P.L. 104 301.

Please keep my office apprised of further actions. Thank you for your
attention to this matter.

John McCain
United States Senator
