Diné actress Geraldine Keams loves her profession

On a nice sunny day, the Tséhootsooí Medical Center hosted the 2nd Annual Navajo Youth Culture Day Camp to get kids off their couches this summer.

In the back of the room students from The Human Path’s Herbal Medics University were pulling brown plastic bottles filled with herbal tinctures from a storage container to make formulas for patients during the free herbal clinic held at the Navajo Nation Museum last Thursday.

The Ashinéé Shiyázhí Youth Conference will take place from July 10 -21 in 10 chapters — five in Arizona and five in New Mexico — and will be hosted by the Diné Relief Initiative.
