Milton Bluehouse Sr. was the fourth president of the Navajo Nation in the post-Restructuring of the tribal government. He also served as the vice-president in the office of his predecessor Thomas Atcitty. He assumed the presidency after some controversy involving his right to be president. As he had been an appointed vice-president, the law stated that he was not eligible to become president. The law was changed to allow him to assume the presidency. [cite book
