Leaving was the beginning, but eventually I came to understand that it wasn’t enough. I needed to go back to school. This may seem obvious, but to me it wasn’t. Higher education was never a value instilled in me—my parents only told me to find a job and not depend on others.
As a Navajo living in the city, I want our history to be remembered and acknowledge. We are part of Los Angeles History too!
I want to bring awareness of our presence and cultural contribution to "Los Angeles; we, too, have a story woven into the history of Southern California." #LANatives
