Celebrating the Voices of Navajo Women: A Panel Discussion

May 21 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free with Museum admission.

Women featured in a new book will share their stories in a panel discussion hosted by Soulstice Publishing and MNA. The book, “Voices of Navajo Mothers and Daughters: Portraits of Beauty,” brings together compelling, multi-generational oral histories with portraits of the tellers.
The panelists will reflect on their experience of being interviewed by author Kathy Eckles Hooker, a former teacher with profound admiration for Navajo culture, and of having their portraits taken by photographer David Young-Wolff. Hooker and Young-Wolff will be on hand to sign books after the panelists discuss themes related to their lives as Navajo women, including the coming-of-age ceremony (kinaaldá), Changing Woman, history, education, and and the importance of sheep to the Navajo way of life.
“Voices of Navajo Mothers and Daughters: Portraits of Beauty” will be available for purchase at the event. It is on sale now at Bright Side Bookshop and from the publisher: https://soulsticepublishing.com/product/mothers-book/
