K'é is considered one of the most important principles on the Navajo Nation and on June 19 it was displayed proudly as the Shiprock community came together to provide support for those affected by the Assaayii Lake Fire.

The fire has burned over 14,000 acres since it began on June 13. Community members of Crystal, Naschitti and others have been affected by this tragedy.
As a gesture of support, Shiprock held the For the People Assayii Wildfire Benefit Concert at the Phil Thomas Performing Arts Center on June 19.
Instead of paying a $5 or $10 entrance fee, people were asked to donate material that would benefit the families, pets and livestock affected by the fire.
