After touring Window Rock, Arizona for a few hours, the students were off to Window Rock High School to have lunch with some students, and see what a Navajo High School is like. Their visit started with a short tour of the school, then it was on to the food! Many Fern Creek students were amazed at the selection of food available at the high school, and were not shy when taking a portion of most of the items. Over lunch, many bonds were created, and relationships fostered. Once lunch was over, students piled into the bus, and headed for Canyon de Chelly (pronounced canyon de shey). Students were awestruck when they beheld one the the 7 wonders of Navajo land. Finally, the second day in the Navajo Nation ended; students were exhausted, but the experiences yet to come were even greater than the previous.
Questions for the Navajo and Kentucky students:
1. What were some of the major differences between Fern Creek, and Window Rock high school?
2. What were your thoughts traveling through such a vast landscape?
3. What were your expectations for the conference?
