Little Lambs – Navajo Language Lesson

Little Lambs - Navajo Language Lesson


The little lambs are born.
Near the waterhole my mother makes shelters of green boughs for the mother sheep.
There in the shelters the l ittle lambs are born.

The green boughs stand close together, they do not let the snow nor the wind nor the sand come in to hurt the lambs.
Soon the lambs will be big enough to play with me.
