Every year during spring break, students from Louisiana come the Gallup Diocese to work in one of our “Mission Churches” at St. Anne’s Church in Klagetoh, Arizona. This year they helped to build an outhouse, did some repairs in a few Hogans and as a break, they came to Villa Guadalupe to help make Navajo Tacos. A couple of Navajo Ladies came with them to show them how to make “fry bread” and to help cut up the tomatoes and onions for the toppings of the Navajo Tacos.
After working so hard on the Reservation, it was fun to learn how to make the Navajo Tacos, especially learning how to make the “Fry Bread.” Then, they all enjoyed going to the Dining Room to serve our Residents the Navajo Tacos that they helped to make.
I failed to mention that they had come to us on “Mardi Gras” which is so big in Louisiana, yet we did hear they were going to celebrate after visiting with us.
