Kevin Belin photoFor our October 1, 2020 Cultural Thursday, and in conjunction with our upcoming Native American Heritage Month, we will have a Navajo Language Arts Instructor, Kevin Belin, speak on the Navajo Culture and more specifically. what we can learn from the culture’s perspectives on gender roles. Mr. Kevin Belin is the Navajo Language teacher at Navajo Preparatory School in Farmington, New Mexico, Adjunct Instructor with Diné College with the Navajo Cultural Arts Program, as well as owner of Hashké – Hozhó Design and Collaborative. Mr. Belin has been in the education field for nearly a decade working with fellow teachers, consultants, and language instructors to perpetuate the Navajo Language and Culture through curriculum building, trainings, and presentations. Throughout the year, Belin is consulted to work with youth and demonstrate hands on workshops in historical and cultural knowledge. “I don’t consider myself an expert, but I am the bridge that connects the knowledge banks that are our elders to the young and discouraged learners with modern approaches to language learning and scaffolded instruction to understanding the complex concepts of Sa’ah Naaghei Bik’eh Hozho.” Mr. Belin has been featured on Native America Calling, American Indian Republic, 21st Century Native leaders podcast and Indian Country Today as a cultural representative and is a Billy Mill’s Running Strong Dreamstarter. “Teaching the Navajo Language to our young leaders and helping them understand the complexity that is the Diné way of life is a lifelong endeavor.”
