I live on the Navajo Nation reservation in New Mexico with my wife, Terri and our three girls June, KC and Erin. When not exploring trails, I manage projects on @navajoweb and @nativeinovate.

We were told about those protectors, our warriors, who lived and died before us. Their words and actions remain constant in our stories. They are not forgotten and remain alive within us. Today, our protectors, again, stand for our children and your children. I listen to Ta’sina Sapa Win's words with my children in mind...you should too. Very powerful. #NoDAPL #NoDakotaAccess

“They stood there smugly and laughed at us. I did this for my mom. I did this with the spirits. My grandmother always told me to stand up for what I believe in, to stand up for my children. When I feel that my son’s future is threatened, that he might be poisoned, that he might not get to experience life because of cancer, how can I not protect my child? I’ll die for my son. For his future, for all of these children’s futures. What little we have left, I will protect.” Ta’sina Sapa Win, Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, was bitten on the chest by a dog while demonstrating.

My local league 4 Corners Junior High should replace flag football with lacrosse. I mentioned this to the president of the league and some league coaches. On one of many trips to my Flagstaff HQ, I stopped to refuel and found several Canadian lacrosse team members heading down to PHX to play. They asked if anyone on the Navajo Nation played lacrosse and I stated, "I personally do not know any teams and basketball is the #1 sport in our area." His last words, "Well, I hope at some point a lacrosse team comes out from this area, whether it be a junior high team or a professional team in the national league."
