Yes, the same two sisters that sang
the Navajo Morning prayer for us.


I this post, I explained in detail, how we met his father, a renowned Navajo guide and how we brought the two sisters for dinner with us. He asked them to regale us, after dinner, and they did so without demur. They are very self-poised and assured. My ‘Canyon Song‘ post includes the ‘National Geographic’ write-up of the family, including their names. The dad’s name is Daniel Draper and he is well known in Canyon de Chelly circles.

I am told that this ‘Facebook’ song is fairly well known among ‘kids’. What is unique is the hybrid version that THEY CREATED — Navajo and English.

It gets better. She had sung it at a talent competition at her school and one of her teacher’s had recorded it and put it on YouTube. That video is longer and of better quality. I ‘post’ it below.
