Navajo Key to Life: Kinship

By Sisters Maureen Farrar and Michelle Woodruff, ASC

As the world marks Indigenous People Day (August 9), we in Crownpoint, New Mexico, celebrate what we have come to know over decades as the best of the Navajo people and character.

Crownpoint, in northwest New Mexico, is on the Trail of the Ancients, where prehistoric archaeological and geological sites bear witness to the ancient Puebloan, Navajo, Ute and Apache people who called this part of the West their home. It’s also on the Navajo reservation.

We Adorers are relative newcomers, the first of us arriving in Crownpoint in August 1982.
