(Aljazeera) The Navajo, the largest native American tribe in the US, is set to launch its own presidential election on Tuesday.

In a break from tradition and move towards reform, there is a high possibility that Lynda Lovejoy, a Navajo candidate, will become the the tribe's first female president.

Many have high hopes that she will tackle serious domestic violence and sexual abuse against women.

Rob Reynolds reports from Arizona's Kayenta, a place which is part of the Navajo nation.
