Free Book for Navajo Schools and Libraries

Thanks to a grant from Kahtoola for the People, a Flagstaff-based nonprofit, Soulstice Publishing is proud to offer one free copy of Voices of Navajo Mothers and Daughters: Portraits of Beauty to every school or public library in the Navajo Nation who requests it.

This book was created by the more than 60 Navajo grandmothers, mothers, and daughters who opened up about their lives, their culture, and their love for each other in its pages. We want to share their stories with everyone, particularly with Navajo girls and women, their families, teachers, and librarians.

The Kahtoola for the People grant has made it possible for Soulstice to provide 200 free books through this program between now and May 2023. All costs (including shipping) are covered. If you represent a school or library that wants to participate, here’s what to do.

  1. Register on our website as a Navajo school/library customer. By registering, you’re helping us make sure these free books go to the right places. This is the signup page: soulsticepublishing.com/wholesale-bulk-registration-page/
  2. Once you submit the registration form, Soulstice will quickly review and approve it. Then, you can place an order for this product. Log into our website using the username and password you’ve chosen. You will see the option to get one copy for free.

We are grateful for the generosity of Kahtoola for the People, the nonprofit created by Flagstaff-based Kahtoola, makers of essential outdoor gear for climbers and hikers. They immediately saw the value in providing free copies of this book to Navajo schools and public libraries and decided to make it possible. We appreciate their support.
