Want to Learn about Navajo

Hi, hoping u guys can offer me some help. I learned in high school (I'm 20 now) that I am part Navajo. The percentage is very very little but I honor that part of heritage that I have, even if it's little. And want to learn more about my culture and tribe. But I don't think I can very well just go walk onto a reservation (I've never gotten to be on one yet) and just ask them to teach me. I want to learn the dances possibly, the why's behind them, the culture of Navajo. Any advice on how I can begin to do this, I would preferably like to learn it from someone face to face, not just look up videos.
Thanks!

First thing to find out. Who are your clans? It is best to know which ones before embarking on your journey.

I would like to offer this help. Take time to read what you have written. Everything is 'I want', but you have not offered to 'give or share' in return. Look up 'giveaways' by Native people.


Europeans count their blessings by how much they have.
Indian people counts their blessings by how much they give.

These words are written with a good heart. Don't view them as a personal attack.
