Yellow





My name in Navajo means Yellow. When my dad was making the Yellowstone documentary he interviewed a chief of the Navajos and the chief explained they call Yellowstone "Mitzi Adazi". This means yellowstone in direct translation. Most people think yellowstone refers to the yellow and red stones found all over the park, but rather, it was what the natives called GOLD. To them gold has little value, but they found gold all over Yellowstone back in the day and therefore it was called Mitzi Adazi. I love things that seem to be ordinary, but when you dig a little deeper, a treasure is unfolded.
