Navajo Lifeway

During the spring and summer of 2000 I spent 9 weeks photographing a group of Navajo herders, weavers and cultural activists called Diné bí' íína', meaning "Navajo life ways". This group is comprised mainly of women who are dedicated to preserving the traditional sheepherding practices among the Navajo. Much of my time was spent with three sisters, members of the Begay family and founders of Dine bi iina. Because of the openness of this family I was able to photograph intimate domestic scenes of Navajo life. More of these images can be seen in the book, Local Heroes Changing America: Indivisible, Tom Rankin, editor.
