The Voices of Bears Ears — Ep. 3: The Navajo

Carol Talus calls southeastern Utah her ancestral home. Living on the Navajo Nation, just outside of Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, she welcomes visitors to her home using the Airbnb Experience platform. Talus shows what it’s like to visit a Navajo, or Diné, family at their home site. She also shares the land’s beauty.

With a guide and extra time to appreciate a place, according to Talus, beauty emerges from all around: before, behind, beside, below and above. There's also a story behind the scenery and the place. Follow Talus to hear the story from some of the earliest people of modern-day San Juan County.
