Topic: Begay Family History
Yesterday, I also had the opportunity to interview my Naalii's brother, John Yazzie (Hashke Yazhi) who currently resides at eezhchii' Haneez'ahi, (which is east of Del Muerto). He is from the Honaghaahnii (One-Who-Walks-Around People) clan, born for the Tsenahabinii (Sleeping-Rock People), with maternal grandparents from the Ashiihi (Salt Clan) and paternal grandparents from the Todich'ii'nii (Bitter-Water People). He's been living at eezhchii' Haneez'ahi since he retired from his job in California working with a silver company somewhere. Before working with this silver company for 10 years, he lived as a sheepherder. Based on what he could remember, John Yazzie was willing to provide me the names of my grandfather's siblings, parents, and grandparents, which is documented on the Honaghaahnii Family Tree.
