Stars in the Desert Navajo Reservation

 
On April 15th, 1999, Actor George Randall (Indian In The Cupboard), actor/screenwriter, Val Gameiro and myself left to go to Tuba City, AZ, the reservation town on the Navajo Rez. Stars In The Desert is sponsored each year by Vanessa Brown, a Tuba City resident, and this activity helps to fund different activities for the children. This particular year we needed to help raise funds for a new community center for the children.

On the reservation, we were invited to talk to the children, to visit some children in a correctional facility and to visit and come to know and love those residents who sponsored us.

We played football, went rodeoing, danced, pow-wowed and walked in a parade for the children.

It was a wonderful time filled with laughter and memories that will last me for a long, long time.
