It wasn’t until I left the Navajo Reservation that I understood my purpose as a Navajo storyteller.

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.
