Navajo Culture and Language:

The Alamo Navajo School will be implementing Navajo Culture in classroom K-8 school year 2008 – 2009.  Navajo Culture is very important to our people, especially the children we are serving, because this type of learning can give us a positive Navajo image and identity. It will give us a good foundation to be strong and to have courage as a person.  When we understand our own education, then we will have self understanding of where se came from, who we came from, who we are, what we are, why we are here and the direction we are going in our lives.  If we, the Dine’, do not teach our own education, we will lose it.  If we lose it, we will lose our truce image.  Then we will be without a clear sense of identity.  We need to survive culturally here first before we take it somewhere else.  This is a good step and the right step to move forward.
