Class Day #3 - June 2, 2011

Today our Navajo Oral History class met via ITV again for the third and final time prior to our field work which begins on Monday (June 6) on the main campus of Diné college in Tsaile, Arizona.

The WSU students gave research presentations on a variety of aspects of Navajo culture and life. The topics included: demographics, government, judicial system, health care, education, economy and workforce.

Following each presentation, all members of the class discussed the facts and figures presented.

Near the end of class we took care of lots of last minute planning to ensure our projects can get a good, quick start next week.

The WSU students helped me load the van with our gear and luggage.
The blog will be quiet for a couple days while I drive to New Mexico where I'll meet the students' planes, and then drive to the Navajo Nation. We'll start sharing more information and photos on Monday.
