Homeland – Navajo Language Lesson

Homeland - Navajo Language Lesson

HOMELAND

The land around my mother’s hogan is big.
It is still.
It has walls of red rocks.
And way, far off the sky comes down to touch the sands.
Blue sky is above me.
Yellow sand is beneath me.
The sheep are around me.
My mother’s hogan is near.
