In celebration of Pride month…

Miaya Watchman, 17, of Window Rock, Arizona, walks along with the Diné Pride parade June 19 in Window Rock, Arizona. A week of virtual events celebrating Diné Pride 2021 and Pride Month kicked off with a parade that was full of color and smiles from the Navajo Nation Museum parking lot to the Navajo Nation Council Chambers. The theme for 2021 Diné Pride was honoring all Indigenous “womxn” who uplift communities and lead movements.
