Say Hey Say Ho Say Navajo!

March 29, 2021

Special thanks to Chief Todd from the Navajo Tribe for organizing a great weekend on Peanut Island in West Palm Beach. Kayaking, paddle boarding, and snorkeling are just some of the activities on the Island.

We had the island to ourselves after the last ferry departs for shore.

Nightfall means movie time.

After the movie Chief Todd leads us in a circle time of Chief and princess introductions. Each father and daughter share stories of how they joined our program and what it means to them. This trip reminds me of a simpler time. The Navajo Tribe values their present but also the past as princesses who have broken arrow return for this trip. Some even drove from out of state to attend. Their bond is strong.

I think we’re going to need a bigger boat.

Some of us enjoy the sunrise.

The fried rice was outstanding and dessert was even better. Great job on food preparation and execution. Everyone helps out to make this great weekend happen.

Thank you for a wonderful weekend Navajo Tribe.
