Hello, my family and my friends. I am Richardson Etsitty. I am born for the Black Streak Wood people clan and Rock Gap Clan from my father. My grandfather, my mother's father, clan is Deer Spring and my Nali's, my father's mother, clan is The Towering House people. I reside on the Navajo Nation of Lechee Rock, Arizona. Thank you and I am very grateful from all around.
"I've lived on the Navajo Reservation my entire life, without electricity and running water. As I grew up exploring the canyons in my backyard with my siblings, Horseback riding, hiking, herding livestock and finding new places to fill our time. There was never a worry from our parents as we were always close by, the land around us took care of us as we roamed free. As I grew up, I appreciated the beauty of the surrounding area.
"FAMOUS Upper Antelope Canyon is just less than a 1/2 mile away and provided me with my first job when I was only 8-9 years of age and been a Professional Navajo Guide as a Navajo tour guide in the Upper portion Of Antelope Canyon. I appreciated the natural beauty of the canyon and with many stories told and was able to share that with guests from all around the world. Working in the canyon for many years helped patiently act of photography and sharing the stories of my DINE LAND.
As a Family company, my guest experiences are my number one priority. The Hogan has not only given us a place to call home but an opportunity to continue to better ourselves everytime we step into modern generation. We sleep in the security of ourselves and our ancestors and we wake in harmony and peace to glory life and sunlight. I wish the same healing on others as I have experienced myself.
My hope for the future is a better understanding of where the Navajo people come from, as we are known as DINE. A hope of acceptance of all cultures, to understand the background of the person standing next to me in a room. I hope to share this with everyone, experience this for yourself.
"This is a true once in a lifetime experience, beyond your wildest dreams."
