I am a senior at Flagstaff High School, my clans are Many Goats born for Bitter Water, my maternal grandfather is Mexican Clan and my Paternal grandfather is Many Goats. I am originally from Shiprock New Mexico and I am 18 years old.
When I took this picture I thought about how amazing it is to stand at such an antique sight and being able to look at a land mark that not only I get to see but also my ancestors before me. Being in this exact spot capturing the beauty of Shiprock rock could mean I was in the exact spot that many leaders we look up to have stood and embraced this beautiful sight. And the painting (watercolor) represents an elder with a child being taught generational teaches with a weaving that tells the future of both people.
