To Walk in Beauty.
Photographs by Stacia Spragg-Braude. Afterword by M. Scott Momaday.
Museum Of New Mexico Press, Santa Fe, 2009. 198 pp., Numerous illustration, 11x9¾".
To Walk in Beauty takes readers on the journey of the Begay family of Jeddito Wash, Arizona, on the Navajo Reservation. This is an intimate portrait of a family’s decision to return to the reservation and to reclaim its cultural identity. The book highlights in intensely personal terms the sense of cultural dissolution long associated with the tragedy of Navajo history, and it examines the spiritual healing that can take place when cultural identity is reclaimed.
To Walk in Beauty’s portrayal of a contemporary Navajo family’s efforts to bring back their traditions is a universal story: the story of people everywhere who want their children to know who they are and where they came from.
