"Mr. Yazzie, the memory of what I've felt won't be leaving me. You're one of a few people that I've had the opportunity to meet and watch who radiates passion for life and an awareness of being, and you inspire me deeply. And so, from the depths of my heart, thank you. I know you inspire many people; what you have to teach is so rarely taught here, and so valuable!"
Letter received from a college student
“The performance was sensational! My students loved the interaction and stories. The performance fit perfectly for our social studies curriculum. Mr. Yazzie is amazing! Larry involved students and staff, and he held their attention for the entire performance. Our kids had a wonderful time
The children are still talking about the fabulous day they shared with you!
