Created initially as a tribute and to our founder’s late grandmother and a process for grieving her passing, Grownup Navajo began as a blog. Through reflections about Dine’ culture and practices, Jaclyn Roessel shaped her advocacy around the belief that Indigenous cultures, as foundations, are the future of healthy and thriving communities. Over time, invitations came to Jaclyn to articulate the power of cultural knowledge and the company took flight.

Today, Grownup Navajo is transforming into a digital media and education company dedicated to integrating Dine’ and Indigenous ways of knowing and community building strategies to build stronger, more inclusive and anti-racist communities.

  1. Dear Jaclyn,

    Lucille shared your Blog site with us. Yours is the first one that I have ever seen! Your insights and writings are an inspiration to me. It is truly an honor to be your student. You are a wonderful teacher.


  2. Jaclyn, I’m really glad I found your blog! I’m really amazed to see how well you know about where you came from and you seem to truly appreciate the value of choosing to maintain your Navajo culture and heritage. Keep up the good work!

  3. Good morning, I read about your site in an article from the New Times regarding the Yandy.com sexualization of Native Americans. You may want to reconsider using google AdChoices for advertising on your site. since when I visited I saw two ads for yandy.com. Feel free to reach out if you would like a screen shot.
