Navajo Kentuckians at NCTE’s National Conference in Washington, D.C.

On Saturday, November 22, 2014, The Navajo Kentuckians met in Washington, D.C. to present at NCTE’s (National Council of Teachers of English) National Convention at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center. The group, made up of Food Lit. students and teachers from Fern Creek High School and Window Rock High School along with Rex Lee Jim and Dixie Goswami, shared the powerful ways that the study of Food Literacy is helping them to cultivate creative, critical thinking and powerful connections to self, family, and community. The group also had the great privilege to meet with Dr. Claudine Brown, the Assistant Secretary for Education and Access at the Smithsonian Institution, at The Castle Building.
