Biography
Ya’at’eeh! Shi ei Natasha Hardy yinishye. Kinyaa’aanii nishliigo, K’etlahi bashishchiin, Hashk’ahadzohi ei dashichee, aadoo Naakai Dine’e ei dashinali. I am from Hunter’s Point, AZ which is considered part of the Fort Defiance Agency. My loving parents are Katherine and Gerald Nez. My maternal grandparents are Marie and Billy Hardy of Hunter’s Point, AZ. My paternal grandparents are the late Mary Alice Shay and Mark Nez of Lukachukai, AZ. I am 24 years old.

I have three beautiful little sisters of which I am the eldest. I am a 2007 graduate of Window Rock High School. At first, I furthered my education at UNM-Gallup majoring in Dental Hygiene; in the fall of 2010, I decided to switch my major for something that I felt would be more rewarding.

With that, I am currently pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education for Dine’ Teachers with Dine’ College. The decision to change my major was fairly easy. I felt that the revitalization of our Navajo language and culture was very important and necessary. I truly believe this is my purpose.

If I am blessed with the honor of representing this great nation, I will emphasize our traditional way of life and to stress the importance of teaching. Lastly, without the support and teachings of my family, I would know be who I am today. Instilled in me are their teachings, knowledge and wisdom of our language and the Navajo way of life. For this, I am and will always be eternally grateful.
