    NASA and the Indian

    Hot 3 months ago

    When NASA was preparing for the Apollo project, they did some astronaut training on a Navajo Indian reservation. One day, a Navajo elder and his son were herding sheep and came across the space crew. The old man, who only spoke Navajo, asked a question, which the son translated: "What are the guys in the big suits doing?" A member of the crew said they were practicing for their trip to the moon. The old man got really excited and asked if he could send a message to the moon with the astronauts. Recognizing a promotional opportunity for the spin-doctors, the NASA folks found a tape recorder. After the old man recorded his message, they asked the son to translate. He refused. So the NASA reps brought the tape to the reservation, where the rest of the tribe listened and laughed, but refused to translate the elder's message to the moon. Finally, NASA called a official government translator. He reported that the moon message said: "Watch out for these guys; they've come to more...

    The Navajo Man

    Hot 1 year ago

    A salesman is driving toward home in Northern Arizona
    when he sees a Navajo man hitchhiking. Because the trip
    had been long and quiet, he stops the car and the Navajo
    man climbs in.
    During their small talk, the Navajo man glances surreptitiously
    at a brown bag on the front seat between them.
    "If you're wondering what's in the bag,"
    offers the salesman, "it's a bottle of wine.
    I got it for my wife."
    The Navajo man is silent for awhile, nods several
    times and says, "Good trade."

    About 1966 or so, a NASA team doing work for the Apollo moon mission took the astronauts near Tuba
    City where the terrain of the Navajo Reservation looks very much like the Lunar surface. Along with
    all the trucks and large vehicles, there were two large figures dressed in full Lunar spacesuits.
    Nearby, a Navajo sheep herder and his son were watching the strange creatures walk about,
    occasionally being tended by personnel. The two Navajo people were noticed and approached by the NASA
    personnel. Since the man did not know English, his son asked for him what the strange creatures were
    and the NASA people told them that they are just men that are getting ready to go to the moon. The
    man became very excited and asked if he could send a message to the moon with the astronauts.
    The NASA personnel thought this was a great idea so they rustled up a tape recorder. After the man
    gave them his message, they asked his son to translate. His son would more...
