Krishel Augustine - Shima, Shimasani, doo Shicheii ( My Mom, My Grandma, and My Grandpa)

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"
