# TRIP 4: NAVAJO CROSS-CULTURAL TOUR
(8 nights)
introduction to Native American lifeways and customs; stay in a Navajo camp
[Arizona, New Mexico, Utah]

Immerse yourself in the living culture of the Navajo Nation. Live alongside and work with Native American people. Experience the Navajo connection to their land firsthand. Participate in ceremonies, learn a little of the language, taste the food and slip into the rhythms of traditional Navajo life, all whilst walking over a Navajo land beneath a Navajo sky.

For eight days you will be welcomed into Navajo (or Dineh) culture, where you will participate in community projects designed to help foster cross-cultural understanding and introduce you to a vibrant people with a rich heritage.
