The Navajo Hour





 1954 | KGAK Radio

This series opened new vistas of life, liberty, and happiness to thousands of Americans of the Navajo tribe. Through this strategic medium, new processes of education have been established, interest in civic and tribal affairs stimulated, and fresh two-way markets developed. Radio, “the wind that speaks,” has become a way of life in the hogans and villages of the Navajo reservation.
