/Pledge of Allegiance (in the Navajo Language)

Here is the Pledge of Allegiance, as written in the Navajo language. Navajo is a Native American language. It was originally composed by Francis Bellamy in 1892. I have no information on who translated the song into the Navajo language. I found the lyrics to this posted at the Chapter House today while attending Veteran's Day ceremonies. This video is being posted in honor of all the veterans who have served and are serving for our Nation. Thank you to all the families who lost loved ones so that I can celebrate freedom. My prayers also go out to those who lost loved ones at Fort Hood, TX. The posting of this oath is not only intended to teach the pledge, but to also help learn the meaning of the words to the pledge. Again, a translation of the Navajo word or words in English is written below each word. This is just but one version of translation in that one Navajo word can mean many different things when translated to English.
