Day 2- Part Two- Lunch at Window Rock High School & Canyon de Chelly

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?

  1. I didn’t really know what to expect from the conference. I had never done anything like the conference before so it was a completely new experience for me.

  2. When we first got out of Albuquerque and it the open landscape of New Mexico and Arizona I was awestruck, I had no idea how vast the landscape really was. It was so different than anything I’d ever seen before.

  3. 1. The major difference between fern creek and window rock wasn’t really landscape for me, it was ,ore of the difference in the people. Not how they look, not how they speak, but the friendliness to one another. And the respect towards the things that they have.
    2. My thoughts on traveling through the vast landscape. Truthfully my only thought was how beautiful it was. It was a landscape that I had never seen before. and only saw things like it in movies, so to experience it in person was a fantastic thing to be able to do.
    3. I set no expectations for the conference. Because when you set expectations, sure you have something more to go for, but then you might try to hard to go for just that. And when you have it stray from that, it could improve what you are trying to get through and you are to focused on keeping it what you wanted there is no way for it to. So I set no expectations for hope it could be better than what I initially would have set it for.
