Taos Pueblo to honor Nixon’s 100th birthday year

........................................................................................................................................................................................

TAOS PUEBLO (AP) — A northern New Mexico American Indian tribe is scheduled to honor the late President Richard Nixon for what would have been his 100th birthday year.

The Taos Pueblo will pay tribute to the California-born Republican on Friday with a special honor at a pow wow.

Nixon is highly regarded among the Taos Pueblo and other American Indians for agreeing to return to some lands to tribes. In 1970, for example, he returned around 48,000 acres of sacred lands to the Taos Pueblo.

Tribal officials say the president’s younger brother, Ed Nixon, will accept the honor and give remarks on behalf of the Nixon family.
