Working Together | Our focus in this campaign is education through our Diné Way of Life Teaching. This teaching allows our youth to determine and manage their future with respect to our elders. We need to be an example and practice a life that emulates all Diné values, while caring and putting into play responsible laws and practices that promote accountable uses of our lands.
