PHOENIX – Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly says he talked business with Redskins owner Dan Snyder at Sunday's NFL game and not about the ongoing debate over the team's name and logo.
Shelly said Monday that he and Snyder spoke about expanding an agreement the tribe made with the team earlier this year.
The Redskins entered into a licensing agreement with Navajo Arts and Crafts Enterprise for the sale of tribal jewelry, rugs, sand paintings and other items at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland.
Washington waived the licensing fee for the tribe and is working to open the agreement to the other 31 NFL teams.
Shelly talked to Snyder about other possible initiatives, including construction of an indoor sports pavilion on the reservation and funding for the Navajo Code Talkers Museum.
