The desert may look like the moonscape, but some call it home.
from the Chief Theresa Spence Hunger Strike Letters Of Support
One day, a Navajo elder and his son were herding sheep and came across the space crew. The old man, who spoke only Navajo, asked a question which his son translated. "What are these guys in the big suits doing?"
After the old man recorded his message, they asked the son to translate it. He refused.
So the NASA reps brought the tape to the reservation. The rest of the tribe listened and laughed — but refused to translate the elder's message to the moon.
Finally, the NASA crew called in an official government translator. The translator reported that the moon message said, "Watch out for these guys; they have come to steal your land."
