Today we finished gathering food for some of our family relatives in Querino Canyon, Navajo Nation, Arizona. In our red pony before another 57-hour Navajo Nation curfew. We were able to get much-needed supplies for this family and they said thank you for your donated assistance and help. (Covid-19 Virus Pandemic Crisis 2020)

Hi, I'm known as Bitahnii Wayne Wilson, I'm of my mother's clan, Bitahnii ni' Shli ( I'm Folded Arms Clan ) born for Toh aheedliinii da Shi zhe'eh ( my father's clan is The Two Waters that flows together Clan ) and Tohdichiinii da Shi Cheii ( Bitter Water Clan ) is my Maternal Grand Parent and Tsi'najinii da Shi Nali' ( The Black streak running on the tree Clan ) is my Paternal Grand Parent.
I was raised by my Grandmother and Grandfather. I was instructed to introduce myself in this way so the Holy People know who we are as Nihokaa Dine'h Bi'lah' ishdla iih ( Upon the Earth surface people ) with the clans that we were given long ago by Nahastaan Nadleehi' ( Changing Woman.)
I usually say my prayers, meditate, and give my offerings before I go out to do my deliveries. I'm only doing what I can while I can, it is a challenge but I believe and have faith in the Great Spirit as I go out to do what I can to help and assist the elderly, the children, and families who are in need of food and supplies.
