The Cornfield – Navajo Language Lesson

Lesson in English and Diné Bizaad:

THE CORNFIELD

The cornfield is fenced with poles. My mother works in the cornfield. My father works in the cornfield. While they are working I walk among the corn plants.
I sing to the tall tasseled corn.
In the middle of all these known things stands my mother’s hogan with its open door.
