"Ha’ahòni, in the Dinè Language is “Perseverance.” As we come into the Fall, while everyone is planting their crops and continue to care for livestock, it is one of the words you hear a lot. This is the time that tender care of new life must persevere. The word Dii IINÀ comes back to again and again. It is a test of endurance, prior knowledge, and the knowing that one must act in accordance with natural law to be able to be in harmony with their world around them. It is a time that we remember all the work, toil and struggle is for a greater good of the community. This perseverance, or Ha’ahòni we would love to celebrate with you! "
