Navajos Wear Nikes
- A Reservation Life
- By: Jim Kristofic
- Narrated by: Jim Kristofic
- Length: 8 hrs and 28 mins
Just before starting second grade, Jim Kristofic moved from Pittsburgh across the country to Ganado, Arizona, when his mother took a job at a hospital on the Navajo Reservation. Navajos Wear Nikes reveals the complexity of modern life on the Navajo Reservation, a world where Anglo and Navajo coexisted in a tenuous truce. After the births of his Navajo half-siblings, Jim and his family moved off the Reservation to an Arizona border town where they struggled to readapt to an Anglo world that no longer felt like home.
Entertaining and Educational

Kristofic work taught me respect, love, and understanding of the Dine.
Most of all it taught me a deep understanding of the land when I sit in front of the hogan and how fortunate to have a Beautiful Navajo woman in my life.
