I am a Navajo boy. Din 'ashkii nishli. A Navajo boy introduces his parents, brothers and sisters and goes on to describe his family's traditional way of life in the nineteen-forties of last century. It centers around a pastoral life with sheep and the processing of the wool by his mother and sisters. His father builds a traditional Navajo home, a hoghan, out of logs, and we are introduced to a sweat lodge and read about other traditional activities. Beautifully illustrated by a Native Navajo artist, Gerald Nailor, the book reminds us of a slower, healthier way of life. It was originally published in 1940 by the educational division of the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Bilingual Edition: Navajo/English. Includes Navajo alphabet practice worksheets.
