Heading Into Canyon de Chelly

The 2013 Navajo Oral History project group is going to be off-the-grid for a couple days while we camp in Canyon de Chelly National Monument.

We'll be staying with Lettie and Flemen Nave, a family that lives in the canyon near the junction of Canyon de Chelly and Canyon Del Muerto. While there, we'll help make and enjoy traditional Navajo foods, hike to places that very few white people have ever seen, and learn about Navajo culture from Lettie and her family.

This is rustic camping with no electricity, water from jugs, an outhouse, etc. We won't have access to computers and cell service in the canyon is very spotty.

We'll be back to the Diné College campus on Sunday afternoon (May 26).
