Ya' ah teeh! Shi dine' e!

My name is H. Helena Begaii and I am from Dine' Nation in Kayenta, Arizona. Hello and welcome to my website. The following pages will introduce to you my family, my father, and the Traditions In The Making Pow Wow.

It is my greatest honor to introduce you to my father, Samuel Tom Holiday, a Navajo Code Talker during World War II. He served in the United States Marines with the 4th Marine Division. Next I would like for you to meet my beautiful family who are part of my heritage. Lastly and most importantly I welcome you all to the Traditions In The Making Pow Wow. My family and I have worked hard each year since 1998 to bring the Pow Wow to you from the city of Delta, Millard County, Utah.

It is with the deepest pride I announce that my father, along with other Navajo Code Talkers was awarded the 'Silver Congressional Medal of Honor' on November 24, 2001 in Window Rock, Arizona.

As it is a medal signifying bravery & valor of the highest standard, I am overwhelmed with pride. My whole family travelled from all over America to see this momentous occasion.

I am Nat oh Dine'e (Tobacco People) Tachii nii Clan (Red Running into the Water People), born for Tódich'ii nii Clan (Bitter Water). My paternal clan is Bít ähníí Clan (Folded Arms). My maternal clan is Kin' yaa' aanii Clan. I am originally from TeehinDeeh (Kayenta, Arizona).
