How Nicholas Cage Prepared for His 'Windtalkers' Role

"For this movie, according to IMDb at least, Nicholas cage actually learned the Navajo language. Even though he's I mean, he really, he's a method actor, so he probably learned some Japanese too. Yeah. Even though his character didn't speak, never spoke Navajo, but they were said in this article and IMDb that cage said he did it to better understand the script, but John whoo maintained that cage had misunderstood the character, which he had been cast, so who knows what the truth is. But yeah, he speaks some Japanese in the movie. That's pretty interesting.

How excited were folks considering it was the first one since 2019. People were very excited, but you know, there are some trepidation because it was all online. And there was some fear that not having thousands of people on hand to cheer on the contestants would somehow diminish it and make it less exciting, but that didn't turn out to be the case. You don't have a nation was hit, especially hard. Like most Indian tribes, 1400 Navajo died from COVID. So they wanted to get back to normalcy. They wanted something something that said we're back. Given that there were thousands, tens of thousands of people. I mean, literally tens and tens of thousands of people who watched this online and commented online. And I think there's a lot of passion for this. And you know, I suspect more people saw it this year than perhaps ever before. Who are the contestants? So the first one was Niagara rock bridge. She's 22. She's from pinyon, Arizona, a very rural part of Arizona. She grew up in a very traditional Navajo family. Niagara ain't shift. Her grandmother taught her how to butcher sheep as a kid. She entered her first pageant at age 5. She's been in ten pageants and won every one of them. She was really immersed in the Navajo tradition since she was a baby. And then a second was gandin yaz 25. She said in her secure, I shaheen a shank. Shan dean was a totally different person. Very interesting. Very distinctive laugh. You could hear it no matter where you were. You can hear Shen dean's laugh. It was very infectious. So shandy and yazi identifies as a bisexual queer indigenous woman. She's very socially progressive. She's involved in Black Lives Matter, violence reduction. She went to a Navajo Nation emerging school to speak Navajo fluently. She was in a punk rock band. She learned a lot of this as a kid and her dad was from the Gila river tribe. While her mother was Navajo and then the third was ash Kayla, Lakota, iron shell. She was 19, I believe. And she partners on a mission. She grew up in a Christian family. She was not as immersed in the culture. She only butchered her first sheep a month before the competition. Her mother hired a teacher to teach her how to butcher she had put up the pictures all in her wall to memorize the various parts of the sheep. Her dad was a Lakota Sue. Before he died, he told her he really wanted her to get to know the DNA culture and to fully immerse herself in it. So at her mother and her sisters urging, she decided to become a contestant. Unlike the other two, she was not fluent in Navajo. And that was going to come back to sort of haunt her during the competitions. The.

"So who's eligible for miss Navajo Nation? What are the requirements what's the preparation contestants do? You have to be 18 to 25 woman unmarried. Those are the basic eligibility requirements. For this year, for example, there are three contestants. And to prepare they would butcher sheep, for example, they would study their Navajo history. They would have to write an essay when they applied why they wanted to do this. They had to come up with a platform. If they win, what are they going to do? How will they concretely help the Navajo people? How do they work toward that? A lot of work goes into it. This isn't just a ceremonial title or something for photo ops or ribbon cutting ceremonies. It's an actual official position with the Navajo Nation. Yeah, it works out the president's office. You get a small administrative staff. You get paid, you get a house in the capital of a Navajo Nation, ruined rock Arizona. As chandin parish, the miss Navajo, who just left, told me, you're the female voice of the nation. As miss Navajo Nation, I have really took it upon myself to be everyone's sister and mother, grandmother, friend, because that's my role as miss Navajo. You are a good will ambassador for the president's office and also you're the face of Navajo tradition and culture. The role of mastaba nation is an governmental capacity. I serve as a female voice in our government. So during the pandemic, she served two years because they didn't have the contest last year. She visited all 110 chapter houses on a reservationist 27,400 square miles, stretches into Arizona, Utah, New Mexico. She brought PPE. She brought food. She brought dog food. She brought diapers. All the while in this regalia, this velveteen dresses and jewelry and a £4.3 silver crown, which he always wore. It's a real visual office. And people know you and people respect it. And you're expected to act a certain way when you're in that position. What did former miss Navajo Nation winners tell you about their experience? Yeah, well, I spoke to about three of them. Crystalline curly was one of those. So she grew up very much in a rural lifestyle where everyone spoke Navajo and everyone had sheep in animals. I grew up with hot television, no. Yeah, I know. Just the radio skills, yeah. So this was kind of second natured her, and her grandfather was an herbalist, and he was really adamant that she assumed a leadership role. And so he kind of pushed her toward entering this Navajo Nation. Your grandfather. Why was that important to him, do you think? Are we thought that, you know, the Gustavo crown, you know, when people see it like when you're into community, you know, she serves as that. Milestone for the community and he was like that he was really big on leadership and he was a community leader. And you know, he just thought that he would have one of his granddaughters to come with that. What's interesting to me is that the Navajo Nation its largest Native American tribe in the United States today, their language is by far the most spoken Native American language in this country. So why the need for them to have this official champion of their culture? One official said that possibly 50% or maybe even less than 50% of the 400,000 navajos speak the language. And there's no indication that's growing necessarily. It's about the retention of language, the retention of cultural teachings, and then of course the role of women in Navajo culture. I spoke with ophelia nez, who's the First Lady of the Navajo Nation. And she is a huge champion of the language. I always think, you know, now that it's turned virtual, it allows a lot more people to see what the competition really entails. And I'm hoping that it will inspire a lot more young women out there to realize what this pageant is all about..

"The idea of using native american languages as a form of military code didn't begin in world war two and actually began in the first world war. The germans during world war one had no problem understanding english and they had managed to break every american code. An american army officer named colonel alfred wainwright blower of one hundred and forty second infantry had several members of the choctaw nation in his unit one day he overheard them talking to each other in the choctaw language. You realized he couldn't understand what they were saying and if he couldn't understand then the germans probably couldn't understand either. He gathered up all the choctaw soldiers and told them of his idea and they were on board. They developed a code based on the choctaw language and then distributed the choctaw speakers so there was one in each company on october twenty six of nineteen eighteen. Just two weeks. Before the end of the war they manage to execute it withdraw of two companies in the second battalion and the germans didn't suspect a thing a german officer who was later confessed that they had no clue what the choctaw speakers were. Saying in wiretaps on the american phone lines didn't give them any advantage. The experiment of using choctaw speakers during world war one was a success but it was very limited. The program didn't even get started until the last month of the war so there wasn't much opportunity to use it. The idea of using native american languages during the second world war came up quite early in the american involvement in the conflict. A man by the name of philip. Johnston who lived in los angeles came up with the idea. Johnston had grown up in a missionary family. Who lived in the navajo nation in arizona. He learned the navajo language as a child when he played with other children. The reservations spoke the language. Johnston realized that navajo might make a great basis for a military code. Never had a lot going for it for starters. It's a fairly complex language. It at a very complex grammar and sentence structure second. Navajo can't be understood by any other native american groups. Even the closest related native languages can't understand navajo third navajo wasn't well-studied or known beyond the navajo nation. It was estimated that fewer than thirty non navajo people in the world knew the navajo language. And none of those people were in japan. Finally at the time navajo wasn't a written language so there were no books that could be used to help..

"Annie E Casey foundation This is weekend edition from NPR news and Lulu Garcia Navarro The annual miss Navajo pageant is normally a big robust event where young Navajo women compete to showcase their deep knowledge of their traditions Shawn dean Parrish was crowned miss Navajo Nation back in 2019 but as the pandemic ripped through the country and disproportionately impacted indigenous black and brown people she was asked to stay on in the job to help her try to get the resources they needed shandy joins us now Thank you so much for being with us Hello everyone Good to be here Thank you so much Walk us through what you have to do in the competition because this is not like a Miss Universe or miss USA The miss Navajo Nation pageant consists of several different competitions It is a 6 day process where as a Navajo woman you're tested on your abilities your traditional knowledge your Navajo language fluency and also your ability to remain poised calm and collected during the entire pageant One of the first competitions you have to compete in is butchering a sheep from the moment it enters the arena alive all the way to specific types of the meat to prepare stews and other traditional foods for later competitions Wild calm and collected While calm and collected correct that sounds hard That sounds hard Tell me the purpose of this I mean it sounds like it's a way to really keep the traditions of the Navajo Nation alive Sure butchering shape is a huge component of our culture and our traditions as Navajo women were expected to know how to do this so that we can provide for our families And as a young Navajo woman in the competition you're being tested on this skill and ability so that you can display that you know how to take care of your family and ultimately take care of the Navajo Nation So the pandemic hits and they asked you to stay on in the role Explain to me how that happened and how you roll changed after that Well nobody really tells you how to be miss Navajo in general let alone how to be miss Navajo Nation during the pandemic when the president of the Navajo Nation Jonathan has declared the COVID-19 pandemic public health emergency for the Navajo Nation We really took a hands on approach that I'm very fortunate that the president included me in the conversations and also in the food distributions to be on the front lines with him And while we were distributing the supplies that are people needed we kind of lost track of time and that's really how we were so focused on our work that we didn't realize it was August and usually the pageant takes place in September so with little time we didn't prioritize the pageant And we really wanted to prioritize the health and well-being of our people So can you describe some of the work that you were doing in the community and also how did the pandemic affect you I mean it really did as we know devastate some of the First Nations all over the country So as we establish our nation you make plenty of personal sacrifices And one of the sacrifices that I had to make was staying away from my family Most of 2020 because I wanted to keep them safe And the reason why I had to isolate myself was because the president and I visited all 110 local governments on the Navajo Nation and we traveled to all parts of the Navajo Nation two times during the year of 2020 so that we could distribute water to those that didn't have running water so that we could distribute hand sanitizer to those who didn't have hand washing stations and ultimately preventing the spread of COVID-19 And that must have been really hard for you It was back to being isolated that definitely takes a huge toll on your mental health And you're just your well-being in general But we really stuck together as a team and very very we're very fortunate to have kept each other safe and not contracted the virus during our time serving the people And was your family okay too Well the virus on the navo nation began in my home community So it was very difficult for me personally to watch the spread of the virus begin in my home community and spread throughout the nation So personally it was very difficult to worry about my family and their well-being while still trying to help the rest of the nation So I understand a new miss Navajo Nation has been crowned Yes Niagara rockbridge was crowned miss Navajo Nation 2021 2022 on September 11th How does it feel to be passing The Crown after such an intense experience And what advice do you have for her I am excited for her and excited for all of the future miss navajos because the position of miss Navajo is a very unique opportunity for our young Navajo woman to step into leadership And to learn about how our government and our people our community members work together to maintain our sovereignty as the Navajo Nation So I'm very excited to see how she will decide to help our people and I'm excited for the future miss navajos to come Shawn dean Parrish is the former miss Navajo Nation Thank you so much Thank you.

And of course made it much much worse. I wanna talk about really quickly about just how horrible their deaths were out of that scene I mean it was. It was really awful with her. It was a shocking shocking. The way that jack died a chest. A lot of this book has to do with the nature of good and evil. You know and what is good and what is evil. And what is forgivable. When can good be when can evil turn back to good and you know. There's a devil in this book and there's a spectre in this book but that gang of humans are the worst in this book. This humans are the worst they are the worst and i and they just like they're the worst. And then they become wurster they become they become just even more awful like they're they're now. Two of them are cannibals. Yeah they're just kind of just just dip in a toe into cannibalism. Here another eating the to- there dipping into cannibalism. Would you like the last jedi. Get the fuck out. You know what you're gonna die. I'll die by i hope. I hope you die painfully. There's the opening line of this book that i adore as is so often. The way with blasphemous acts. It all started on a sunday. I highlighted that so quick. Yeah i mean this. Whole opening of this book is so great absolutely brilliant So then we have. Of course charles meets lester. Who's devil the devil. A devil trixie trixie little devil man who we love is love and he makes. Oh he makes you such a deal. You can't refuse. It makes you an offer you can't refuse. It's so simple but it's you know you gotta look at those fine lines in the contract and the semantics of kind of the problem is he kinda comes to you when you're little vulnerable so you're not thinking about that. Oh it should be so easy to get the five men and turns out. It's no no it's just five over and over and over and over and over again. Never mind the probably two hundred people that he also killed. Yeah get those five men right. So there's that it's just this. Violence begets violence in this. This cycle that you find yourself in. I greatly enjoyed lester though. I thought he was funny and he kind of fit me as like a timeless characters. Truly like i can imagine that. Lester travels all through time and different worlds just making deals. He's basically the crossroads demon except he lives in churches. That pop up in the middle of nowhere. I love a demon that lives in a church. Get out david. I feel like you did that. I feel like i could have been a steve thing. But i don't know you willing to see but i feel like that was a cheeky lil. Will david nugget there. Well Charles gets his revenge at. I love his Transformation into the navajo niwas gusting. So grow him turning into the skeletal creature that used destined elsom fleshy bit and I can picture it. I can picture it so vividly. And like i said he's a spectre he's he's this thing and they kind of talked about in the book is the story. That's a myth that's also real- that's also a tall tale and It just feels very rich. Feels very rich. So turns out that..

"Bookworm buddy. Don't forget subscribe rate and review. And while you're at it is on instagram. John junkies okay. Here are the trigger warnings. We can think of Policies if we miss anything right off the bat there is sexual assault in this book or at least we are led to believe that a sexual assault has just happened. Or we're kind of getting some flashbacks of it. So it doesn't matter sexual. Contact is in this book as they say in the forward indigenous people or for two as natives and that word and that kind of term for a group of people is not a lot of people's favorite way to be identified but it is historically appropriate. So you know there's some of that going on and there's also a depiction of somebody who was a slave who is black yes and You know time appropriate terminology is used for that character as well. He's referred to as a negro so I think that you can judge for yourself if that is something that you're okay with right. I think these authors make it clear that that's not what's in their heart but they're writing a historical context book so on with this show. Oh wait one more and also. I don't usually like to give this trigger in books. Because i don't wanna over. I don't know it seems silly. But i don't want overdo it but the some pretty severe violence against children. Yeah big time on with the show. Okay so this book is split in into basically two stories right from what it seems for the most part. I'm sure that they each had their own input on the tube but one is written by. David was written by steve right. So we have the first part of the book which is where we follow charles anderson who does a gunslinger and now he's reformed. I fell so in love with charles and his wife. Oh my god it's such a great story and setting idea. And i love the two of them together and Mary and their little boy a and Just the way that lake mary house-passed he has a past and they just enjoy each other and they just enjoy chillers company so much and they're just kind of moving into something new and she just wants to have like this kind of normal. Little lake settled down family and he does too but he's a little. He's a little more rough around the edges to easily kind of conform than she is but he just wants to be with her and be with their son. So it's kind of like well. That's what i got to do that. And i see. This is the softie that i am. I wanted the story of him coming back after getting the two thousand dollar loan the two of them work in the land. You know making them. Like i wanted that whole story. I wanted a little house on the prairie. Were accepting that excites. Pau used to accept that paul used to be a cold blooded killer. That's what i want. That's what i wanted. And i'm mad that i didn't get it. I know and this is funny. This is chew back to back books. Now that we've done that have a lot to do with vengeance Very different though very very different. So it's but it's there's still like ike and charles. What's his name. Billy was name bodily bodily they would all get along really well because then i'll be like you're a killer amateur yup killer here too cool when i mean i can't tell you the the agony and the ecstasy moment of him coming back with that loan after what he had to do to get to that point in his life and to get there and energy come back to that devastation.

I i had my private and then of course went to college a few months later and i marched into the dean of students office after i've been at the university for just about three weeks in explain to him why we needed a flying club and then he sat down and proceeded to tell me all the reasons why that was not going to happen and on the way out and by the way this was the university of south carolina and on the way out. I said gosh. I just thought since clemson had flying club since one thousand nine hundred ninety eight i thought south carolina needed one and He said Sit back down young man and within about five months we had our first airplane For those who are not That aware is you can imagine having to state supported schools in a tiny state. There's quite a rivalry between those two between those colleges unfortunately clemson as the one with the with the football team the question is did clemson really have a flying club. Well you know as a seventeen year old. I was probably known to exaggerate things a little bit. But but to the best of knowledge. I think they they did so high school. What what what's next were you. You became a pilot of course next career that led you to the ntsb. Yeah i did.

Settings by governor say were members of the public as the nation's first lady but to administrators teachers. She has dr. Jill biden college professor at salt community college in illinois. There were pink and white flowers out. Everywhere befitting her visit the even matched her white dress and pink jacket but there was also a welcome. Dr biden sign so huge that the period on the doctor was as big as her head. It felt like a subtle rebuke to that scolding. She was subjected to back in december for using the title. She has every right to indeed in all the places she goes lately. She is honored as a woman with several degrees. Who has worked really hard her whole life at the most relatable job there is. Everyone has a favorite teacher. After all on our visit to the navajo nation. In april dr biden was introduced by someone came to think of as the ruth bader ginsburg of indian country chief justice of the navajo nation. Supreme court joanne. Jane a tiny woman with hair pulled back in a tight ponytail. Winning doc martens dr biden. Millions reap inspiration from your quote. Teaching isn't just what i do. It is who i am in birmingham alabama. She was introduced by a lawyer. Liz huntley a sexual abuse survivor whose parents were drug dealers. I want to thank dr biden from the bottom of my heart for the role that she plays not just the first lady but for her heart for educating she told me she's grading papers on the plane. Y'all what who does that. They say being an educator as a calling in your life that you can't resist and she just won't let it go. December debate of titles seems awfully small in the face of all of this. Jill biden schools visiting vaccinations sites traveling to red states to sell the american rescue. Plan telling folks that help us here. The role she's fulfiling on these visits is in many ways neither first lady nor professor but a key player in her husband's administration a west wing surrogate and policy advocate and underestimated asset. As mary jordan the washington post reporter written a book about melania trump. Put it to me. It's hard to imagine. Joe doing this without her which is not to say that dr biden who is constitutionally shy doesn't take special delight in these visits she becomes looser goofy and more expansive. You generally hear her before you see her because she is often laughing. She is quite simply a joy multiplier as part of her elevator pitch for free community college part of the one point eight trillion american families plan president biden proposed to congress in april. She likes to talk about one of most dedicated students. A military interpreter from san came to america to start a new life a few semesters ago. I got a text trimmer.

"Is all things considered. I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles. And I'm Ari Shapiro in Washington. The Navajo Nation extends across parts of Arizona, Utah and New Mexico. And last spring, it had Mork coronavirus cases per capita than any U. S. State. Now the infection rate is even higher to talk about the challenges of fighting the disease on the Navajo nation. We have Dr Loretta Christiansen on the line. She is chief medical officer of the Indian Health Services Navajo area. Thanks for joining us. My pleasure. Thank you for having me as you try to get this crisis under control. What are your biggest pinch points right now? Yes, This second wave has been extremely challenging for us, and it is much more intense than the first. Major things that we're dealing with right now is a critical nursing shortage because we are competing with the entire United States, who was also surging. But we're very fortunate that we have a very exceptional staff, and they have found ways to create more ice you beds. One of our other really big challenges, however, is the neighboring states are also surging. And we do send our most critically ill to tertiary centers in Albuquerque, Flagstaff, Phoenix and Tucson. So as that gets tighter, we have to keep more patients in our facilities, and we do have finite bed capacity. One bright spot is your contact tracing program I understand is really strong. And so do you have a clear sense of How the virus is being spread right now we actually do and the majority of this wave right now has been due to gatherings. The Navajo people are very social, very family oriented, and what happened was a lot of gatherings for family celebrations that had been put off for so long. During this pandemic, they felt safe to go and meet with their families, however, that resulted in Numerous clusters. At the same time, it just became overwhelming. The numbers just kept getting higher and higher order with cases spiking all over the U. S one of the unique challenges to fighting this surge in the communities of the Navajo nation. Well, I think we have to look at the extreme reality that we live in every day. And therefore resource is take time and effort to bring into this region. For example, supplies like high flow, oxygen and equipment, critical equipment like that. It is not right here. We have to really make a concerted effort to get our resource is here for us to use. You talked about the extreme reality of the Navajo Nation. I know that this is the size of West Virginia that we're talking about, and only 13 grocery stores. I mean, how does that complicate things? Well, Does because people all have to go.

But all during this time. That i was going to school and in my <hes>. My teenage years my parents. My mother didn't drink but my father was an alcoholic. I remember him times coming home and beating up my mom and pour wine on her head because she wouldn't drink it and it was. It was a very scary time for for my sister's nine. Somehow sometimes we she would get away and she takes the two of us and we run away and stay in the woods and just huddled together and freeze and until he went to slave or he passed out or you know our gone went somewhere would come home and it was. It was difficult childhood that we've had but still my mother didn't drink and so that was. That was good for us. But for some reason she started drinkin- we were when i was about eight years old. I had a couple of beers and just graduated by the time i graduated from high school. She was a full blown alcoholic. I mean it just. It just took care of everything from from our home. They were never home. When you're under the summertime out of school. I would have to herd sheep with my death mute grandmother. We were out there weeks at a time and they would never return home that go on a drunk and they'd never come and there was times that we just practically run out of food and so i told my grandmother one day i was probably ten or eleven which is out of food and she head she had noted some grease in the some lard in a little pain and she put salt in it and she and i had a piece of bread and we just dip our bread and in the in the make sure there was what we had for dinner

They're kind of Sort of hybrid between thrillers and mysteries because her regularly mystery you're protagonist might not be being much danger or hers always get there get their butts kicked every time anyway. She is a wonderful wonderful writer. I I love her books. I just finished a new book by another new writer named Chris. Kelsey and he writes books. They're in Oklahoma in the nineteen seventies and he has a a wonderful sheriff. Who really is a? He's a guy with a strong strong moral compass who also has a strong affinity for Bourbon. And you end jazz and you wouldn't think tech would go together. He's just Chris. Kelsey is another writer who deserves a lot lot more attention and I love. I love his books and I would love to see both both Chelsea's books and Luna's books on the Best Times The New York Times bestseller list in Amazon. All those places where people looking for new books Michael to find a new writer sometimes but arbitrary. Isn't it the ones that make the headlines Giant I know and sometimes sometimes I look at those books. I think this book is here because people love this Ryder but this book itself is not vote. The writers best work so yeah. It's it's a challenge to readers. I think with so many books to choose from and so many books that are baby overly hyped and so many other good books. Don't don't rise to the top because people just don't know about them. I also love to eat a lot of nonfiction particularly nonfiction. That has to do with the life. Life on their on. The reservation is a a writer named Jim Christoph he grew up on the Navajo reservation and he just he he wrote wrote his first book was called. Navajos wear nikes published by the University of New Mexico press. I'm here because people could find anything anywhere. I'm sure people can find it. It's a wonderful kind of funny and heartbreaking at the same time memoir of of his early years his his he just did a sequel to it. And I'm I'm not remembering the name of it right away and I wrote them down but I might my notebooks in the other room anyway. Both of his books actual. It's called reservation wild anyway both. He's a fine writer in both of those books are I would highly recommend it to anybody who's looking for a new voice and for a chance to learn a little bit more about the Navajos in South West. We'll make sure we put limits to those as well so while you're just talking about writers we come into the end of our time together so just circling around way. We are looking back down lights tunnel. The way that you've done things is the anything that you would change if you were doing it all over again. Well if if I knew I was going to be brave enough to take on this landmark series. I would have talked more to my dad about it and I would have said you know. What do you do when you reach a point where you need to move the action align but you still want to be respectful of the the tone of the Navajo way of life? Which is you? Don't resting give things if people time to see what they need to say. You do. Respect a person's privacy. If you have to go back a time you do that. How do you reconcile that with the pacing that you need for modern mystery and a million more questions? I would've asked if I had it to do over again but then I think if I I don't know find would have had the courage to actually do it if I had talked to him about it because I would have felt like it was such a such a huge responsibility. So that's one thing I would have done done differently. I would have paid more. Attention to use commas properly. I edge of appreciative debt. I was GONNA say what data to support. What do you think your dad would make main some men who are extremely successful? The have that sort of type A personality. They don't like to think about a back that they might be able to be displays to do you. He would have been pleased. I think he would have been pleased because I know he had such affection for these characters. I mean sometimes I think he. He enjoyed spending time with them more than he did with his sixth rowdy. Kids I think he and I am also he had such. He took such delight when readers would come up to him and they would sage but because of the the the setting and the cultural information. Your books I've I love your books. Now I'm learning to enjoy other dad love to hear that. I think he would be happy. Think that these readers who loved his books are still able to see what Jim Jim. Chee and joe we partner up to. If I was touched by comment that I read a Net New York Times. I bet that he got more pleasure out of the Nada. Her children who came up to him and saved they were enjoying the mistreats. And all of the rest of the what Fiona reclaim and you know. One thing. That really tickles me. When I am doing talk say in Farmington or Gallop on the you know the border towns to the Navajo Navajo nation and after the talk a a Navajo mother and her daughter and her mother three generations will come enough safety. Our picture taken with you just feel like a hero. Slob so what is next for and the Raisa I? I believe that you've got a sixth Navajo mystery stargazer. That's in the editing price safe. Now what else have we got coming up for? Twenty.

"I'm the books they are obviously all set in Navajo country. But you didn't focus on different geographic locations at an indifferent start judge and I wondered for somebody who'd Never Bane to the South. Waste isn't a way that they could visit and become a little bit patient informed. I mean obviously not in the next few months that win. International driving resumes again is a well-known ways that you can really get to know more about. Naba who coach on the ground. Yes yes. It's really not not that difficult When I when I was was a working on spider woman's daughter I also worked for a company Rhodes scholar. I don't know if you've used to call them elder hostel elder. They decided that all of us elders would rather have a more upscale name. They do tours. I think I think about ten detours into Navajo country. It also go to Zuni Pueblo. And they bring in Navajo Artists Navajo restoring to talk to the people who were on those groups and itself. It's a way to explore Indian country without having to drive yourself if you're if someone is interested in that the as I mentioned a part of the jail Taylor is set at the Navajo Cultural said you're in window. Rock is run by the tribes themselves. It's offers a wonderful wonderful introduction to Navajo culture. A have a a video of all about healing plants. And how they're used in it how they're used for for healing and also how can use it if you have a sore throat you WanNa Cup of tea. It's a really interesting video. And then the museum itself tells the story of the Navajo people from their own perspective. I think when Iraq is the capital of the Navajo nation. And if I were planning planning a visit to Navajo Land I would start. I would start in rock another place I would go would be that the town of Tubas city which is right on the border of hoping and to the city has what's called the Interactive Navajo Museum in the right. When you come to the museum they have a wonderful another wonderful video that explains the Navajo Origin Story. And it's a Navajo ended English and it just. It's just such a really such a gift to people who are curious about the Navajo culture. And then the the museum is arranged as it would be if you were going into a Hogan and it talks about Oh she and Rodeo Navajo language and Navajo Jewelry and Navajo Education. Anyway it's that's another one wonderful place it's the Navajo. Nation has a good website for jurists. And I would highly encourage people who are interested visiting to look at that Kennedy Shea Monument Valley definitely put those on your list. There are many many resources so yeah and it's like anything the more you learn the more the more at any kind of visit to India country will really mean Marci.

He also was a journalist. And I think I don't know if it's in your genes or if some of it is in is in the environment but you know when you grow up with apparent is so passionate about about what they do. I think it just it. Certainly my dad's passion for journalists pattern effect on me so Would I know when I was growing up? I think like a lot of a lot of young people I I love to read. I love to write and so when people would say to me you know so. Are you going to become a journalist like your dad or are you going to become a scientist like your mom and I'd say no?

College Major. Were you could put all those forces together kind of get out of school but after about three years of doing that. It dawned on me that I did not want to be in school for another three years and then I might need to get a job someday so then I looked at all those credits and I had to admit that I really did love to write and I loved being on the cusp of finding out what was happening. And that's really the gift. Journalism gives you so. I decided I would put all my care all my credits in basket and see if I could get a degree in journalism shows and fortunately or unfortunately at that point. My Dad was head of the journalism department and so appreciate. I have a great dad because he never pressured me but when I said I think I'm going to major in journalism he said. I think you'll really enjoy it and I think that's I think you have the right the right personality and the right set of skills to do that so Anyway I got my degree in journalism and then I worked at the newspaper in Santa Fe for about fifteen years and then I decided that I should that I was. I had always thought it would might need to be a mom so I I got pregnant and was able to amazingly works. Were just part time while I was while I was raising my son in I did. Some allied became the editorial page editor for both of our local papers here. And I think a lot of people when you're in journalism people see your name they see your byline and they see that you know had the story together so I got some offers to do some nonfiction books so while I was working fulltime in journalism I did some travel books and then my my son was getting older and I'm thinking Golly Gee I'm GonNa have to put this kid through college and as much as I love journalism. I didn't know the salary so I had a friend who worked for a financial company doing investor investors indications. I thought well that doesn't sound as exciting as journalism but it sure would be nice to be able to help this pay tuition so I did. That was a venture capital company. I did that for a year and that was when we had our first big recession and for Spencer. Capital was one of the very for speaks. It went down an investor. Communications was one of the very first things got cut. Oh I look I had been doing some freelancing and I had done I had an offer to do a I had been doing restaurant reviews for the for both of the votes of the papers and one of the publisher said. Why did you put together a little restaurant guide? I live in Santa Fe which is one of the was one of the prime trysts distant nations. We'll see what happens after after Colin so anyway. Insanity has a lot of relief. I must so I put together a little that little book called Santa Fe flavors and did really well and so then and I looked the tribe I worked with there was a small publisher in Utah called Gibson Gibbs Smith press so then they said today out. We'd like to another book on Saturday Gardens. What do you think and my mom had been a master gardener and I'm not much of a gardener but I appreciate a good gardens and I know how to energy people.

Is Our first experience working together on a on a long-term project and that did really well too. And so in the meantime because I lost my other job my I had a friend who knew something about the business of putting conferences together and she said why don't we do a writer's conference in Santa Fe but instead of reading in the the traditional model for us out here in the Boondocks is if you bring in some big big guy like John Grisham and you payment ton of money and then you get all your little New Mexico people who WANNA be writers to come in and listen to him and I said well you know. Why don't we use my dad? I think he would be happy to be a faculty member and he knows people and we know people so we put.

"I went down to the Navajo Nation about two years ago for a mission trip and there was for me but the weirdest thing I've never understood I mean still took day is you know meeting with a bunch of Christians out there on the Nate our nation you know one of the first things we were warned about almost like a military briefing was the where the skinwalkers this is what they look for don't mention don't talk about but we're telling you so that way you know not to mess with and you know again messing with are going out there and and being around Christian on the nation it was just really strange to me how how all that went Jonathan so how does it all fit together you can be a Christian and believe that skinwalkers are real there's no conflict between seemingly different spiritual beliefs this can Walker is a real person they can be shot and killed M. and I've had relatives actually shot them and killed them so it's it's something that is real but it's a very taboo subject because to to mention them to even bring up the name is to draw attention to yourself and and be asking for a curse to be leveled against you so it's something that's considered very dangerous and that's why nobody talks about it they have had incidents with federal court system we're people that have killed a skinwalker were taken to trial and eventually acquitted back in the seventies so this thing is real it's a real thing that it will offend people and they will not talk to you if you start mentioning them or start asking about because it is so evil how here even bring it up Paul thank you for that call we're gonna go to a break in our final segment will take more of your calls for my guest Jonathan Dover of the Navajo Rangers a lot more still to come here on.

That's what happened to Lawrence Alfred from the Navajo Nation. When he decided to follow Jesus Christ after that I was at work and the sky he named Santa Latsman less bless his heart. He he sent something. That was wrong with me we. We became real good France and he told me he says you know Lawrence. You know I know you're not you're running away from something and he says I sense that you are married and you're running around with these ladies. I have the ability to tell him. Quit talking to me. Because he was a good friend of mine and he had me over a Bible and told me Jesus can help me as I was reading my Bible a couple of weeks after the ceremony for me. I was prompted to read the Bible and I opened the Bible. Now a seredin. I came to a chapter in John Chapter Ten. I really love this. I in this part of my testimony and hit me right between between the I and it's in John Chapter Ten Verse Eleven Ridden Audit An IV and. It says that I am the Good Shepherd Jesus talking. He says I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd leads down his life for the sheep. The hired hand is not the shepherd who owns the sheep so when he sees the wolf coming he abandoned sheep and runs away then. The Wolf attacks and scatters the man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing forty sheep. I am the Good Shepherd I know my sheep. My sheep knows me just says the father. No SME- I know the father and I laid down my life for the sheep all the things that my wife was telling me came together and all the things. My son was conveyed to me when he was four or five years. Old telling you Jesus died for me and that he would never leave me that he bring me out at this whole that I was in and gradually bring me over to him and understand him intimately all came together in that. I said I had just read and from that time on. Got All my knees and just simply ask Jesus if you are real are real to my wife real to my son real to the rest of the people that believe in Jesus Christ then come real to me from that moment on asserted following our Lord and Savior. Jesus Christ I know. No one is like in Christ. Jesus the Lord one one incident he restored was relationship between me. And my son my son DOES MINISTRIES DOWN IN. Tucson helps a passer and he has a leading role in Detroit and one day. He says he seemed like his ministry had stopped. He went to his passer tortillas passer and he asked passer why do I feel that way and he's passer says to him. Maybe you don't have no forgiveness in your heart for certain person or something that you have not forgiven. Says I knew all along what it was but I wanted someone to tell me I knew I had no forgiveness for you dad because of all the things you did to me when I was a child he says that I seen you mess around senior. Do a lot of things that were wrong. I used to end up in the bars with you and play video in slowly. Drink and laugh. We're here friends and the corner play pool and things like that and I didn't like it. I like that type of life with you but I had a feeling that I had to safeguard and to make sure that you weren't coal on you. Pass out mature eating hurt yourself and that while I was eight years old I used to drive you home. And that traffic on eighty nine cards SOCO seventy five sixty five miles an hours drunks on the highway and I drove you home and we we got home. I so wait for you until you get up cupboard you with blankets knows our regrets that I have. And He came back from Tucson almond that story and he told me I forgive you on those things that to me is my life was a good life. That seems like I had to take care of my dad all the time instead of my dad taking care of me inside grew up fast while I was a child and his you forgive me for that and we sat at a table. I think tim on. My wife also told me she forgave me for the things. I'd done my oldest daughter set the same thing to me. She said she forgive me. And my children and my daughter's all one oven praise God never seen me drink or mistreat my wife or mistreat. The family came home and throw things around and make a fool out of myself and cause disturbance incite out. She never seen me do that. She doesn't understand. She just hear stories about it because like I said I ask the Lord to become real for me and as I read the Bible I I. I started to sense a person that loved me a love that I never neum in my whole life. Love with my wife is different love. My children is different by here is our Lord and Savior. That loved me so much that I can tell him anything one on one relationship and he would understand me and I could feel his loving harm. Surround me and tell me son. I forgive you come home. You are my child your special to me you know when someone says at heart to walk away from a person like that and Jesus did that to me. He understood he forgave. He showed me the way to walk and he gave me a light. He gave me if future. He says you know I love you so much. That's what Jesus done for me and I know no other there will take my sins and die for me and take place for me. One time I ended up in jail I was driving the you. I you know. There's nobody that came up beside me and say I will take your punishment for you but Jesus did that to me. He says Laura Tell. Take your punishment for you. And he went across and died for me. That's why my I started trust in. Jesus that's why my youngest daughter never saw me Doodo. Things never saw me with the raging anger and and and throw things around and do things I used to do.
