Jolyana Bitsuie shares her journey becoming Miss Navajo Nation 2001/2002. As a young girl, she remembers moving away from the Navajo culture during her formative years as a high school student in Phoenix. Her mother understood, however, that one day she would come back and she did. Two days after being selected as Miss Navajo Nation, September 11th happened and she spent the next year representing the Navajo Nation across the country. As Miss Navajo, she shared what it meant to be a Navajo woman. She was the representation of her mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers, and communicated the importance of knowing who you are as an individual. Today, she teaches urban Navajos to keep their language and be proud of their roots, to ensure the survival of their language and culture. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxPhoenix, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxPhoenix event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
