“As long as you understand where you come from, you can be yourself.” Jon Yazzie struggled to connect to his cultural identity for some time, leading him to make the wrong life choices and lack a sense of belonging. It wasn’t until he made his way back to the Navajo reservation that he could regain that connection and feel at peace with himself. He started bikepacking nearly a decade ago as a way to experience his native land, and last year, launched a bikepacking program for Navajo youth so they could gain a better appreciation for their culture.
