Kody Dayish - Navajo Filmmaker

July 1, 2019

Kody Dayish grew up on the Navajo reservation in Shiprock, New Mexico. A few years ago, he had a devastating, life altering accident. That accident, and a simple gift from his sister, led him to start writing down the stories that he had meant to get to but never had. Now Kody, his sister Kollette and brother Kolin are working together (with an assist from Mom Fanny and Dad Tom) making films from those stories, funded by local breakfast burrito sales. It's a family and community effort in which everyone should find encouragement and inspiration.
