The sales tax on cookies, chips, sodas and other junk food sold within the territory of the Navajo Nation is set to increase. Tribal advocates for the junk-food tax sought a bill that could serve as a model for Tribal communities to improve the rates of diabetes and obesity among Native Americans. The bill cited statistics from the Navajo-area Indian Health Service that said about one-third of Navajo citizens are diabetic or pre-diabetic, and the obesity rate for some age groups is as high as 60 percent.


The $1 million-a-year that the tax is expected to generate will pay for projects including farmer's markets, vegetable gardens and wellness and exercise equipment in the tribe's 110 communities. Foster Pepper PLLC takes great pride in its long history of service to Native American and Alaska Native peoples and organizations.
These posters show nutrition information for the 20 most frequently consumed raw fruits, vegetables, and fish in the United States. Diabetes was the fourth-leading cause of death in the Navajo area from 2003 to 2005, the health service said.


To increase the affordability of healthier foods, another bill to eliminate the 5 percent sales tax on fresh fruit and vegetables sold on the Navajo Nation went into effect October 1.
I never understood, by the way, how we can attach the 'Indian' label to one of the most unhealthy foods, the Navajo taco.
