Navajo Alphabet : The Navajo Sound System: Vowels and Consonants

Description

The letters in this Navajo Alphabet book are introduced with beautiful photos, reflecting Navajo culture, tradition and environment. Each Navajo word is spelled out in Diné Bizaad (Navajo language), and its corresponding English translation. Putting the Navajo consonants and vocals into a cultural context, affirms the Navajo Child's language and identity and also introduces non native children to a culture, different from their own. This alphabet chart created by Native Child Dinétah has been used in schools across the Navajo Nation for many years to teach children their native language. It is now made available for the first time for children and adults beyond the borders of Navajoland. An added explanation and short introduction to the Navajo alphabet by Young and Morgan at the end of the book will be helpful for the reader.
