Renew the Fireplace of Knowledge – Kinyaa’annii Library Campaign
The fireplace is the center of a Navajo home – Sacred Fire, the illuminating witness to the growth and development of Navajo education. Navajo Education completed a major milestone in 1968, establishing and leading the way for American Indian Education. The Kinyaa’annii Library is located in the center of the Diné College -Tsaile Main Campus
The First Tribal College Library, Kinyaa’annii Library, was opened in 1974 under the prayer of Navajo Medicine Practitioner Charlie Benally, the seeds of Navajo Education were planted in remembrance of the unfailing efforts of our Navajo elders securing the future for the realization of today’s Diné College.
For one year, starting April 2019 to April 2020, in-line with the start of the planting season, help us the plant seeds of the Renew the Fireplace of Knowledge – Kinyaa’anni Library Campaign to raise $200k for library renovations. As our elders before, the College entrusts the initial efforts of our Diné College Alumni to lead and to give to the campaign, encouraging stakeholders to give to the renovation of the Kinyaa’anni Library.
