There are a few words on the Navajo Nation that everyone has heard and "Aye" is arguably the most common.

So if you can relate to the word "Aye" and are in search of something new to read, you might consider a recent release called, "Shades of Aye: Authenticity Will Be Tested" by Navajo author Michael Woestehoff.

"Julienna zipped up the back of a cherry red mini skirt while the rest of the girls put on other provocative dresses of someone's choosing. It was nothing they would buy, but it was fun to try on something that would get them out of their comfort zone."
