Team YKD

Ya’at’eeh! We are #TeamYKD. We are a mom + pop business based out of Tsaile, Arizona. We are educators, activists, and writers with big dreams to change the economic and political landscape of the Navajo Nation. We love critical thinking, conversations around campfires, good coffee and solar tech!

Our work incorporates our passion for knowledge dissemination, on-the-ground activism, grassroots organizing, family, and culture. We partner with established organizations that specialize in innovative indigenous empowerment, strategic community building, traditional knowledge preservation; and we execute team-based solutions to grow their reach and achieve their mission.
