(Navajo language) I am Delia Begay and I am Navajo. I am a sophomore at Haskell Indian Nations University. Haskell is the only college in the U. S. with an enrollment that is 100% American Indian and Alaskan Native. I think it’s important because of the history that’s here. I didn’t know anything. I just knew this was a university and then I went to, you know, my classes and they constantly tell us, “Remember, this used to be a boarding school. This used to be something that was very bad.” But, then we took it back and made it into something good, a university for Native people. I’m from the Navajo Nation in the four corners area and it’s very much in the middle of nowhere. If I’m there, I don’t have the opportunities that I would get if I was out here. So, I’m out here trying to do more and be more so that others can do the same thing and bring back to their people and their community. I am Delia Begay and I want to be a filmmaker. Every gift, large or small, makes a difference! Thank you for supporting our students. Onward Haskell! Haskell Foundation www.haskellfoundation.org
