  1. Just curious… is there a video of Navajo ANYTHING that doesn't involved a background wood flute? Why is it that everyone making a Navajo video think they have to include one? It's as irritating as Zamphir or Kenny G. You don't see them doing a video with a Navajo indian hanging around in the background do you? No! They go it alone! They know when people are watching them, it's all they can bear and not a thing more. You put a Navajo indian in the background, you got someone disconnecting, throwing a dislike their way and never coming back.
    That's just me. Some of you may have a Grasshopper moment. And for you guys… more power to you.

  2. Is it improper to refer to crafted items that we have made as hand-crafted, or are only the terms crafted and handmade acceptable descriptions?

  3. It's pronounced more like in'-geht.  Would have been nice to see a series of images from raw materials to finished piece, which is what he was trying to explain as "handmade."
