In the Fall of 2016, Rui Qi, took a photograph of me standing in front of the Main Library at the University of Arizona in Tucson, AZ.

I'm a Diné graduate student at the University of Arizona. I am looking to attain my MA in Native American Languages and Linguistics (NAMA), and wrapping up my MA in Library and Information Science.

As one scrolls through my site, one will find a variety of written material relating to my encounters through my academic world.

Much of my journey began with great curiosity of technology at a young age, that soon revolved into creating graphic design work, creating websites, but all that I have done has Diné Bizaad (Navajo language) in mind.

My hope is that I could get other Diné and Native American students looking to help their language vitality or finding ways to balance out indigenous ideals with libraries, archives, and museums.
