Oh, yeah. Why did I snore too? Foggy? I walked them each one of you that are listening through all the different media's and and if you're in your home or across driving, wherever you live wherever you travel wherever you do business, thank you very much for listening. This is Clayton long. I am a look at it now, which is a read people and just to let you know a little bit, right? Read. It. It it is like in the, in the third world, the water took over the Navajo, third world, and there had to be a way to get to the fourth world. And it was a read that helped the most grew the most. It had a way to go through the read. And so the people basically were saved from the water or and going to the fourth worlds on the way. I feel like maybe there's a way.
For me to share information. Not only me. But for the folks that we interview weather be at 1 in the visual, or a group or something. That's the kind of the Crux of our coming together. I'm also a machine but she's chained. That's my father is a whole story about what my father told me about that, but I'll save it for later and then I my grandfather on my mother's side has a son. And those are part of the folks from over in New Mexico area. And then the last of my on my father's side should not attend lindeke. The Edgewater people.
And that's me. I come from Kayenta Arizona. I've lived there and then I travel to Tucson Arizona where I get my education. And then I moved to Utah, where I either got my education. I was first became a regular certified teacher in San, Juan school district, and that's where my dreams started to occur. I always dreamed about how it is that the language is important to culture in the history. And then I said, how is it that I can bring that into the classroom and back in the 70s that when I was teaching about 78 or? So, most of the kids were actually understanding now though. So I could actually converse with them no problem. And so what we try to do is add reading and writing to that, that's we'd learn about Navajo.
So anyway that dream for the spelled into maybe someday. We will figure out a way how we can help future generation to always think about who they are. One is the language to is the culture, and three is their history, and then the way they live the way life goes on every single day. And so we want to share ideas that would help them to say in the future. When they listen to the podcast, again, they can say things. Like, remember I remember so-and-so said this and I loved it so much, like I actually made a part of my life and whatever it is, it could be a song. I can be a saint to be a, a story, whatever it is. And that's probably what are big group, which I called the had the nun, Jonah, and corporate income.
Rated those folks that meet together during their board members and they have that same dream. However, we can preserve that language, culture history and the way of life, we are all going to die. Then we're going to all do our best to be able to bring this up front for the young folks in the future. I do want to tell a quick story. There was a time when the navajos were being driven here and there and the folks had to move around a lot because they didn't want to always stay in one place because the enemy was always coming. And one of the things that they did was the train that you had the kids in the the families to quickly bring things together and then move. And when one time, just this group of navajos were moving and they can't to us, they've been driven for all day long in the evening, the they capped, but they always kind of looked out for anything that may
Becoming. So in the middle of the night. There was there was a quick talk about let's we better take off because there's something out there. And so everybody gather their things and they took off and my morning like they were traveling all the sudden. There's somebody says our children. Where are they?
And the children were not with them, and they forgot the children at course in, in times, when there, when needed to gather things together. That's probably why that happened.
But from that day forward, they went back and got their kids likely they were still there and they took him.
The saying goes, we will never leave our children again and we will always put our children up front, so that we know exactly that our children are the ones. And, as we move, we can say our children are ahead of us. I love that story because it makes us feel. Like, even today, our children are number one. We should put that up. Front sheet regeneration. We should say, our children are next children or grandchildren. We got to do something for them to bless them to help them in their lives. So I was thinking about this podcast could do that little kind of help to that, that idea that we are thinking about our children. Anyway, I the podcast that we have is called Asian speaks.
Tumi Christian, he's got four dimensions to it. There's that feeling of peace and love and joy, and then the concept of Harmony for ideas is wrapped into this work, and this is kind of like the goal of each day's going to get Journey, but also a destination, we has been that people we want, cause you to be inside our minds are heart or soul, that we can gather and an end, always feel strength as we move forward. So that's the reason why we we we named it speaks in the speakers are folks that are being invited to our podcast this episode about interviewing Folks at it. Would it would take about maybe 15 minutes. Maybe sometimes it be 30 minutes but around that time so that you don't have a long long version of of people sharing information, but we will have twelve at the
It's a season is Four Seasons. And so it ceases, what will focus on trying to get 12 episodes at meaning? We have a lot of people out there that we admire that we look up to that. We would love to have them come and just ask a few questions and they would tell their story and that's up. That's the purpose of our podcast. Anyway, I hope you join us with love to hear from you either through Little Britain text or no phone call or even just a visit sometime or a dream is that would have a little small Center where we can say that's, that's why we broadcast and that we can gather we need to gather and I hope that my dream comes true. Thank you again for listening.
