My Mother – Navajo Language Lesson

MY MOTHER
My mother is sun-browned color. Her eyes are dark. Her hair shines black.
My mother is good to look at, but I like her hands the best.

They are beautiful.
They are strong and quick at working, but when they touch my hands they are slow moving and gentle.
