a privalege to meet Susie Yazzie...

We took a tour through the valley with a Navajo guide named Eddie.

 

Susie has lived a traditional Navajo life — raising sheep, carding wool and weaving rugs. She has also worked as an extra in several John Ford movies, appeared in books, documentaries and magazines. To this day, this remarkable 98 year old woman continues to welcome visitors to her hogan in Monument Valley.
