Navajo Stories and Teachings and Recipes

"When one tells a story, there is reason and purpose behind each one. It is said that the stories themselves are sacred, despite how it is told, it still serves a purpose. The stories, themselves, protect an individual. Many times I have heard how a Navajo shouldn’t go through life without knowing some songs, prayers, stories and jokes. The stories are hidden within the stars, the same one you look at, I also looked at before. Just like how there are many stars in the sky, there are many stories here on earth. Telling them allows us to share a star with someone else." -- Tyrell Descheny
