navajo singer

I have been singing since I was 13 years old. I started singing the National anthem at various events then I was inspired by my family to start composing my own songs. 

I wrote a song for the National Park Service called the “Junior Ranger”, which went nation-wide to all the National Parks. I have a lot of respect for my culture. I come from a family that is very traditional and am very fortunate to have a strong culture that keeps me on the right path. Ahee’hee”
