The FBI has issued its first poster in the Navajo language, seeking information on the death of a man six years ago on the New Mexico portion of vast reservation.

Authorities say 75-year-old Wilson Joe Chiquito was beaten to death at his home in small community of Counselor in February 2014.

The FBI recently released the plea in Navajo to the public for information that could help solve the case.

The poster has been shared on social media and posted in Navajo communities grocery stores and trading posts.

The FBI hasn’t translated posters into any Native American language beside Navajo.
