Happy Birthday, Roy Kady!

Roy Kady

Weaver, shepherd and chapter president Roy Kady is celebrating his birthday today!

Teec Nos Pos, AZ Master weaver Roy Kady is celebrating his birthday today.  Although it’s a little late in the day, I wanted to wish him a happy day and a great year to come.  As you can see above, Roy is a fantastic weaver.  He also maintains a large flock of Navajo-Churro sheep and is the president of the Teec Nos Pos Chapter.  A chapter is a basic unit of Navajo government and in this capacity, Roy is introducing great innovations which emphasize self-sufficiency and environmental responsibility.  Among his projects is the Baa Baad W00l Co-op, which aims to bring wool processing back to Navajo land.  Last year. Roy was selected to represent the Navajo Nation as a cultural ambassador to Ecuador, and he’s been asked to return next year.

Nízhónígo naníná doo, Roy!  May you walk in beauty.
