  • It's sad it a dying language. 
Credit to @all_thats_interesting : The Navajo language is one of the most complex in the world – which made it perfect for use as a World War II code, the only one which remains "unbreakable" to this day. ⁠

  • I have felt chocked by the pace of life in the city lately. Off to wide open spaces and deeper breaths.

  • NMDA Marketing and Development Division Director Jason New and NMDA Marketing Specialists Juan Sanchez and Felicia Chacon-Frost met with the Navajo Agricultural Products Industry marketing team in Farmington Feb. 20. The United States-Navajo Nation Treaty of 1868 established stipulations to provide land and assistance for farming. In 1908, the Winter’s Doctrine reaffirmed rights of Native American Indians to a sizable claim of water in the San Juan River. Public Law 87-483 was authorized by U.S. Congress in 1962 for the purpose of furnishing water for irrigable and arable lands in the San Juan Basin, New Mexico. The project authorized construction of 110,630 acres of farmland and the diversion of 508,000 acre-feet of water from the Navajo Reservoir to the Navajo Indian Irrigation Project lands (NIIP). In 1970, the Navajo Nation established Navajo Agricultural Products Industry (NAPI), a Navajo Nation Enterprise to operate the NIIP and manage the industrial agribusiness.

Today I sat by a pond in Parque de Vida in Cortez and watched the Canadian Geese glide around in the sun. A kind-eyed elderly man walked up and started chatting with me. .
.
He said that yesterday he walked all the way to Mesa Verde to apply for a job, probably about 5 miles each way. .
.
He gave me a handful of cedar from his pocket that he’d collected along the way and said to burn it as a prayer. He said that his wife of 20 years died on Valentines Day last year. I said that I was sorry for his loss and he replied that in Navajo there is no word for sorry - only white people use that word. .
.
He said that every day he is above ground he lives by a prayer to walk in beauty... beauty before him, beauty behind him, beauty beside him, above him and below him. .
.
He said that as a child he was sent away to boarding school where they cut off his hair, changed his name and would beat him if he spoke Navajo instead of English. .
.
He said that he was recruited into the ARMY at the age of 17 and had served in Vietnam. He said that Indian soldiers were expendable. He said that he spent 8 years living in Germany speaking only English and German until one day he saw a man who looked like him. He called out to the man in Diné and discovered that he too was Navajo. They became good friends and shared the familiarity of language for 3 months before his friend was deployed. .
.
He had blue eyes and said that his name in Diné meant something along the lines of “Eyes Like Sky” and that kids used to kick the shit out of him and call him “belegana” (white) when he was young. .
.
He showed me the black jet arrowhead necklace around his neck made from a rock he found while climbing Dibé Nitsaa - the northern sacred mountain of his people - what non-natives call Mount Hesperus. .
.
He asked me my name and I said, “It‘s Jaime.” He replied, “No, it’s nizhóní.” I countered, “No, it’s pronounced Jaime,” and again he replied, “No, it’s nizhóní. That means beautiful in Diné.” .
.
I smiled and said “Thank you, that’s very kind.” He replied, “No, thank you for listening to me.” .
