“My wartime experiences developing a code that utilized the Navajo language taught how important our Navajo culture is to our country. For me that is the central lesson: that diverse cultures can make a country richer and stronger.”
– Chester Nez, 2011
When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life in a manner so that when you die the world cries and you rejoice.
– Navajo Proverb
