Navajo Now made The Navajo Times newspaper!

July 21, 2011

This week The Navajo Times published an article on my Navajo Now blog. It has taken a few weeks to be interviewed and provide other information to get the article finally ready. Thank you to Carmenlita (NT reporter) for her interest and the work she put into telling the Navajo Nation about my work here.

There is so much I want to be able to accomplish and help provide for others who are learning to speak Navajo. Quite a few of my ideas involve getting the Navajo speaking population involved in the process. Hopefully, this will spark some ingenuity and allow for more collaboration between speaking and non-speaking Navajo individuals. I would especially like to see learning communities for communication between all students of the Navajo language.

A digital copy of the article is available here at The Navajo Times website. I am very pleased with how this was put together, there was so much information that I provided Carmenlita. She’s done a great job.

If you live in AZ, NM, UT, or CO and don’t know where to get a newspaper copy of this weeks edition… check the Where to Find the Navajo Times link on The Navajo Times website.

For all the new visitors:

Welcome!

I am glad that you have found this blog. I hope that you take advantage of the many links I have provided in the Resource Links pages. I have found quite a few resources free for viewing online, and I am very excited to have them listed in one place to share with all Navajo language learners. Take some time to go through the 46 blog posts; I post a new article each week.

Also, I constantly add new links for resources that I find online, so please check back regularly for new content. If you like what you find here on my blog, please Subscribe on the right to receive email versions of every new post.

    I am originally from Bloomfeild nm and moved to Texas as a young teenager I am not Indian but have always felt part of the Navajo community because of my youth and exposer to this community that I received then. I was back home and bought the Navajo Times to read on my way back home and just wanted to tell you how excited I was to read about you helping to teach others about your language I have many times tried to find something like you are outing together. So all of this to say good job and thank you.

    I admire your passion. I also can relate as my first language was Navajo but when I began school, I mostly spoke English. And unfortunately I do not have familial resources like my grandmothers, they have long passed on. I have returned home to reconnect my cultural ties. Especially since I have two young children. So while I am home I want to absorb, establish ties and learn as much as I can or at least open doors to my Navajo roots. Thank you. And if you need any help, I may be of help.

      Way to go with reconnecting. I want to get to know more of the cultural aspect, but I think I will understand more when I have a better handle on the language. Thank you for your offer to help, I have a few mini experiments I want to try, so please keep posted. I would be delighted for you to participate. =)
