Nation Building

I think that it is necessary for Dine people to take time to invest in the most important things. ( Things that are sacred to us) People, land and our Dine government should be categorized as "urgent" or extremely important. As far as engaging within our Dine community (people) we should seriously be culturally stable and culturally functional! We need to appreciate mother Earth and especially our lands. I think we should protect it with all we've got because it took a lot to get it and if you are not going to respect or appreciate the land. Then people will use that excuse against us and the lands may easily be taken from us. We need to definitely understand how our government works. Government itself has a lot of power, and with great power comes great things. We could work for greater things, and things us ''indigenous people" need. i.e. Natural resources!!!!!Live in Harmony and with "HAKUNA MATATA"

Nation Building

From our discussions and readings describe your thoughts on how Navajos should invest into their land, people, and government.

Wilkins Read chapters 2 & 3

I know the covers are different, but the contents are pretty much the same. The study of Navajo culture and politics through the eyes of David E. Wilkins can be very rewarding and informative to readers and students. Sharing thoughts and reviews of the assigned readings can be very productive collaboration for all parties involved in the inquiry of indigenous political systems.

Students post your comments for these sections below, thanks.

Williams Read

A very unique perspective in identifying cultural forces at work and the power of language. Racism in America came with a price, it dehumanized groups of people of color, a powerful insight told with vigor and verity.
Students write/comment on your reading so far, this blog will serve as our communication link for upcoming assignments and research.
