    Daybreak Warrior March 16, 2012

    Language: Diné Bizaad (Navajo)

    People had asked me to do another cooking video! This time, I was honored to have my mom included in the video with me! :-) This video shows in both the English and Navajo language how to make low-fat & low-calorie fajitas. The instructions initially begin in the English language, told by my mom & the remainder half of the video is in Navajo. This video was done unscripted & on the fly... so when I have a brain freeze on how to say a word in Navajo... lol, I just say it in English. It was a fun video to do, a quick video done with just my mom & I! :-) I'm glad my parents are supportive of all of my YouTube video efforts! I hope you guys enjoy this video! I had a lot of fun making it!
