WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. (AP) - The audience for this week's fall session of the Navajo Nation Council isn't limited to those who are physically present among lawmakers.

All regular and special sessions of the council now are being broadcast live online from Window Rock.

Tribal Council Speaker Johnny Naize says the live streaming will allow even more Navajos, including military members deployed overseas, to interact with their government.

The sessions are being filmed by the tribe's Office of Broadcast Services.

Friday marks the end of the fall session, which is one of four quarterly, week-long meetings of the council.
