Your canyon de chelly Guides

In Memory of Ronnie

Ronnie left us suddenly at the beginning of 2009. Guide, partner, friend, mother, daughter and sister, she is greatly missed. Ronnie was raised in the Canyon and loved it immensely. She loved to share its rich history and stories with the many visitors drawn to visit and explore this special site.

"As a child, I lived with my grandmother. She taught me about what was in my path. Through out my life she told me "Be Yourself" and "It's Up to You". I was raised on the south rim (Tsegi) and other sites around Canyon De Chelly. My grandmother raised sheep and I used to herd the sheep with her to the different camps for spring, summer, fall and winter. We spent the summers deep inside the canyon on the floor of Canyon De Chelly with the sheep. Here she would tell me stories about the canyon, the ancient ones, the Navajo beings and creation. She instructed me in the Navajo way of life. "

Today Ronnie's daughter, brother, partner and other family members are honored to pass on the stories handed down by their grandmother to the visitors who are drawn to explore the mysteries of the canyon through Ancient Canyon Tours.
