VIVIAN

Vivian Rodriguez is a Navajo woman who was born in Page, Arizona and grew up in Reno, Nevada. Vivian is a guide who loves to show people the spectacular Rattlesnake and Antelope canyons located in Navajo territorial land.

This day, Vivian, with her brightly colour wool bag clears the way of rattlesnakes before we enter Rattlesnake Canyon. In her bag she also has a wooden flute which, when she plays, adds to the spiritual sensation of exploring the canyons.

She returned to Page and is putting together her past and understand her rich First Nations heritage.
