The six women who have agreed to participate in this special event are Josie Begay-James and her daughter Tara Love (Chapter 22), Vivian Descheny and her daughter Ophelia Goatson (Chapter 21), Amy Begay (Chapter 12), and Lolita Paddock (Chapter 10).

The panelists will reflect on their experience of being interviewed by author Kathy Eckles Hooker, a former teacher with profound admiration for Navajo culture, and of having their portraits taken by photographer David Young-Wolff.
