Navajo Nation Museum Coffee House

Navajo Nation Museum Coffee House

Navajo Nation Museum Coffee House

It’s All About the Coffee or Is It?

By Roberta John

 

WINDOW ROCK, AZ. – When it comes to coffee, it’s all about the coffee or is it?

Not if you’re going to drink coffee at a newly-opened coffee house here in the Navajo Nation capital….more specifically, at the Navajo Nation Museum.

There is coffee and then there is gourmet quality coffee.

Entrepreneur Robert Fontenot states, “We want people to enjoy our gourmet flavored coffee and have a high-end experience.”

As the owner of two other coffee shops – Coffee House and Express Yourself in Gallup, New Mexico, Fontenot said, “It is important to look at the quality of your ingredients.”

All the different flavored coffee is hand done and hand-pressed.

However, he emphasized that it’s not just about the coffee, but the experience.

In fact, Fontenot said the staff he is training want the new high-end café to have a theme called “An Espresso and Specialty Drink Experience.”

Fontenot echoes his staff’s view on how they want customers to feel and was quick to point out that you when you’re slow as molasses in the winter, the Navajo Nation Museum Café is the place you want to be.

As a second generation share cropper originally from New Orleans, Fontenot knows the value of sharing life stories.

“My grandparents didn’t have running water,” Fontenot reflected. “My family has always been big on sharing stories.”

His initial calling came about six years ago when he came out with a church group and helped out community members within the Church Rock, N.M. Chapter.

“I got to know about the Navajo culture,” he said. “I was drawn to the place and found the Navajo people have an enchanting spirit.”

He soon became a substitute teacher at Tohatchi Middle School and was taken in by some Navajo families who shared life stories with him.

In 2012, the Coffee House in Gallup went up for sale. Fontenot and a partner pooled their resources and purchased it.

He was then approached by Navajo Nation Museum Department Manager Manuelito Wheeler to see if they would be interested in operating a similar coffee house in the Navajo Nation capital.

Manuelito said it has always been his goal to have a successful coffee house on the Navajo Nation.

Fontenot was just what he was looking for….And it was no coincidence the two met.

Navajo culture resonates at the Navajo Nation Museum Café.

From a distance and dovetailing nicely is a beautiful Navajo shade house that gives it a warm and inviting welcome.

In actuality, the Navajo shade house is made of PVC pipe that’s been fired to give it a little rustic charm and true Navajo character.

Manuelito said he wanted to transform the new café with a Navajo curb appeal and a Navajo accent to lure in new customers.

It may just be Navajo Nation’s Best Kept Secret, but Manuelito and Fontenot hope not for long.

There was a soft opening on November 24th, but they’re banking on new clients that will navigate themselves to revel in the new coffee café.

After all, Navajo cultural protocol is all about sharing stories….and what better way to do that than with a high-end cup of gourmet coffee nestled against towering red-yawning walls.

“We want everyone to share their stories here at the Navajo Nation Museum Café,” Fontenot stated. “Our goal is to have a standard of excellence. We want to provide a high-end quality coffee experience for everyone. And it all begins with your favorite coffee.”

Fontenot said they will eventually open at 7 a.m. to accommodate people who want to take care of the first order of business right after the crack of early morning dawn and close around 6 p.m.

Echoes of Navajo tradition will remain so your senses will experience authentic imagery and details of Navajo history.

Manuelito said the café will keep the existing black and white vintage photos of early Navajo history as a reminder of where the Navajo people came from.

Naturally, there are hand-carved pine wood tables and benches that pull it altogether to give the eatery a down-to-earth country bravado. Meticulously-designed wood furniture by Navajo Nation Museum staff provides a nice accent and dimension to the Navajo Nation Museum lobby. The stylished furniture was cut fresh from the Chuska Mountains, compliments of the Navajo Nation Department of Forestry.

The Navajo Nation Museum Café….where the quiet sway of ancient Navajo wisdom and modern-day culture weaves together to create a new story and a new palette of deliciousness.

A place where the experience is as satisfying as the flavor.

The menu reflects the sophistication.

In addition to a host of flavored coffees from Espresso, Cappacino, Lattes, Mocha and hot or cold drink called Moolicious,, Fontenot said they also offer “Build Your Own

Premier” omelette, salad or sandwiches in the future, noting, “We don’t want to rush into this; however, we want to take it slow and let the coffee house breathe.”

So if you like it hot or cold….perhaps it’s time for you to enrich your coffee experience and appreciate life’s simple pleasures at the Navajo Nation Museum Café.

And if lunch is faster than the Grinch stole Christmas, you still have plenty of time to enjoy alfresco dining nestled against towering red canyon walls.

Let’s rewind….Just think….it all started when two individuals from two different cultures crossed paths and now they’ve come full circle here at the Navajo Nation Museum Cafe.

It must be karma….and a recipe for success.

Navajo Nation Fourth of July Celebration to Focus on the Youth

By Roberta John

WINDOW ROCK, AZ. –  When most parts of the country may be sizzling, beautiful Navajo country may just be what you’re looking for.

0-barrel-racing-5-720x525

Capture the rustic spirit of the west as top caliber cowboys and perfectly poised cowgirls take center stage during the Navajo Nation Youth Celebration and PRCA ProRodeo at the Navajo Nation Fairgrounds here in the Navajo Nation capital on July 3-5th.

See the unique relationship between man and animals come alive.  Embrace the sheer novelty that cowboys and cowgirls have with their horses.

Navajo Nation Fair Manager Genevieve Tsouhlarkis said “We are very honored to be the only tribe to host a professional rodeo in Indian country.  I want to invite everyone to our evening performances.  The kids can also have fun at the carnival and other youth activities. We also have a spectacular Fourth of July fireworks display planned so please mark your calendar and join us here in Window Rock.”

The Navajo Nation will host a variety of events for the entire family with special emphasis upon the youth.

In fact, the Navajo Nation wants the youth to “Reach for Excellence.”

That’s the theme for the 2014 Navajo Nation Fourth of July Youth Celebration and PRCA ProRodeo in Window Rock, Arizona on July 3-6th.

Navajo Nation Parks and Recreation Department Manager Martin L. Begaye, said “We encourage everyone to attend our fourth of July celebration here in the Navajo Nation capital.  This is the time of year when kids are out of school and it provides a great opportunity to spend quality time with our families.  We understand that many people cannot afford to go on vacation and travel afar so that is why we’re planning a variety of events for the youth here on our reservation.  However, we also have some events that we’re planning for the public at large. Window Rock is a great venue to spend your Fourth of July weekend.”

Tsouhlarkis added, “We’re very excited to host an open junior rodeo specifically for the youth.  Contestants will be able to vie for $600 of added money per each division. The youth is what makes our fourth of July celebration a fun-filled event for everyone.  They are the ones who add laughter and excitement to our lives.  And most importantly, they are our future leaders so it is very important that we help instill positive self-esteem in them while they are young.  As Mr. Begaye stated, we understand it is very costly to leave the reservation and go on vacation.  We hope everyone especially the youth will enjoy their July fourth weekend here in Window Rock.”

The Open Indian Junior Rodeo will be held on Sunday, July 6th beginning at 8 a.m. at the Navajo Nation Fairgrounds. It will include a midget division, peewee division, junior division, Sr. girl’s division, and Sr. boy’s division. Entries will close on June 25th and walk-ins will be held on June 27th.  Entry forms are available at www.navajonationfair.com or you can call (928) 871-6478 or (505) 870-0062.

About 30 young barrel racers will also have an opportunity to enter the WPRA junior barrel racing competition and run with the pros on July 3-5th during the PRCA ProRodeo.  The entry fee is $50 and the administration fee is $15.  Entries will close June 25th. For more information you can call the Navajo Nation Special Events Office at (928) 871-6478 or (928) 550-1775.

More than 400 contestants from throughout the country are expected to win thousands of dollars in prize money during the PRCA ProRodeo, which will be held on July 3-5th.  Nightly performances will begin at 7 p.m. Admission will be $10 for adults.  Senior citizens who are 50 years old and older will be charged $5 along with children five to 12 years old.

In addition to the WPRA junior barrel racing, the PRCA ProRodeo will also feature a wild horse race after each performance. This exciting event will feature 16 of the top wild horse riders from throughout the country. The entry fee is $350 and entries will close on June 25th.  For more information, please call the Navajo Nation Special Events Office at (928) 871-6478.  Entry forms are also available at www.navajonationfair.com

So come and discover the road less traveled.  Share the excitement.  Share the spirit.  And find your inner adventure here at beautiful Navajo on July 3-6th in Window Rock, Arizona.

Standing Rock Native Returns as Navajo Nation Fair Manager

 Navajo Nation Fair ManagerBy Roberta John
WINDOW ROCK, AZ. – It’s never too late.
That is, it’s never too late to become a world champion.
Words that fit Geneva Tsouhlarkis who is also the new Navajo Nation Fair Manager.
She exemplifies what it takes to become a world champion – prayer, hard work and steadfast dedication.
Most people may think of hanging up their spurs or think of retiring at age 50, but not the Standing Rock, New Mexico native.
In fact, Tsouhlarkis gives new meaning to life….that it’s never too late to make changes in your life and even become a winner.
It’s one thing to become a world champion when you are in your teens and physically fit, but when you’re past 50 years old…now that’s what you call setting a real world record.
She first became a National Indian World Barrel Racing Champion at age 33 during the Indian National Finals Rodeo in Albuquerque in 1988.
Then 18 years later…that’s right, 18 years later….Tsouhlarkis rocked the rodeo arena and stunned everyone by clinching the National Indian World Barrel Racing Champion title at age 51 during the Indian National Finals Rodeo in San Carlos, Arizona in 2006.
Yes there are faster horses and younger women constantly entering the rodeo circuit, but with a renewed determination and a new quarter horse name Tip, Tsouhlarkis showed everyone in the house that she was still a force to be reckoned with.
Today, Tsoularakis maintains a busy life of multi-tasking her role as a wife, mother, her career and her lifestyle as a rancher and is still a competitive rodeo athlete.
Speaking of making a comeback, no she didn’t say “I’ll be back” or thought that she would return as the Navajo Nation Fair Manager, but she believes it was meant to be.
She was the Navajo Nation Fair Manager from 1989 to 1991. She wanted to serve longer, but her priority and still her driving force in life is her family.
She hung up her Navajo Nation Fair title and began working in Crownpoint, New Mexico as a Senior Planner where she worked there for 13 years assisting nine different chapters in Eastern Agency with strategic planning and various other local government projects and issues.
Tsouhlarkis said she really enjoyed being a Navajo Nation Fair Manager several years ago, but she wanted and needed to spend more time with her family. Her children are now grown so she is able to adjust her career.
Ever since she can remember, Tsouhlarkis has always been around animals, which include her sheep, cattle and horses.
She is accustomed to waking up during the early morning dawn and tend to her animals. Most people might see it as hard work, but she loves it with a passion and wouldn’t live any other way.
“Even if I get home late, I always spend time with my animals,”she said. “I have to spend time with my animals because they are a part of me.”
That connection couldn’t be more evident in the world of rodeo. She is well-known throughout Indian country and even in the professional rodeo circuit as a highly-skilled rodeo competitor.
In 1977, she graduated from the University of Albuquerque with a degree in business administration and a minor in accounting. She also attended Haskell Indian Junior College and obtained a AA degree in secretarial education and liberal arts.
She looks forward to continuing her role as the Navajo Nation Fair Manager, noting, “It’s like I never left. I want to make the Navajo Nation Fair the place to be. Although we call it the Navajo Nation Fair, I want other tribes to enter our rodeo, pow wows, night performances, and parade. I also want to invite visitors who travel from throughout the world to come and experience our colorful and beautiful Navajo culture. See, hear, taste and experience the lively spirit of the Navajo culture here in Window Rock, Arizona.”
Navajo Nation Parks and Recreation Department Manager Martin L. Begaye, said, “We are very pleased and honored to have Geneva Tsouhlarkis return as the Navajo Nation Fair Manager. She exemplifies the characteristics of a true champion and what it takes to be a leader. Being a manager for the Largest American Indian Fair in North America – the Navajo Nation Fair – takes a lot of time and requires a unique set of leadership skills to communicate and manage many different people.”
