Featured Artist: Krishel Augustine - Navajo Singer & Songwriter

Krishel, former Miss Ramah Navajo Princess, will perform special child and family friendly music as part of the 2013 Festival's expanded offerings for children.

Krishel introduces herself this way: "My name is Krishel Augustine, I am Navajo, and am 17 years old.

I am the tangle clan born for the towering house people, my maternal grandparents are the Apache people and my paternal grandparents are the Zuni people. I am from Ramah, New Mexico.

I have been singing since I was 13 years old. I started singing the National anthem at various events then I was inspired by my family to start composing my own songs.

I wrote a song for the National Park Service called the "Junior Ranger", which went nation-wide to all the National Parks. I have a lot of respect for my culture. I come from a family that is very traditional and am very fortunate to have a strong culture that keeps me on the right path. Ahee'hee"

    The xenophobes are raising smack about 13-yr-old Sebastian singing the Nat'l Anthem at the Spurs game in Mariachi garb. If the Spurs reach the finals next yr, I'd like Krishel to sing it --in Navaho, preferably! Since I'll be listed as 'Anonymous' I'll here identify myself: Tom Watson!

  5. What a lovely young lady. Best wishes to her and for her future!

    Thank you for sharing this. The news of everything leaves me with an unbearable sadness. I sense the antidote in this young woman's beautiful song.
