  1. Thank you so much for speaking to our group last night, the Indian Territory Genealogical and Historical Society. You didn’t just speak to us. You made your Navajo people come alive and allowed us to
    “meet” your family and understand a small part of what it meant to be Navajo in earlier times. Thank you again.
