As most will know, I am a Navajo, I was born about 10 miles south of the Utah border in a small village called Inscription House. I attended the boarding school in Kaibeto, AZ, and went to high school in Page, AZ. 

The last few months have changed a lot of how we live; it has exposed great gaps in the social safety nets that a lot of us take for granted. One of these gaps has been exasperated by the Coronavirus ("Dikos Ntsaaígíí-19"), which has shown a great ability to get others sick in small spaces. The Navajo Nation has a limited number of clean potable water sources, which require many people to use the same water source. 

Part of my effort is to supply drinking water to members of the tribe (specifically in northwestern Navajo country, the part of the tribe closest to me). For the past month, we've been self-funding out efforts, but have decided on crowdsourcing. Below is the gofundme link.

If you are in Southwestern Utah and want to help, please email me at help@lindison.com
