Lanasha is Navajo from Northern Arizona. She grew up on the Navajo reservation in LeChee near Page. She is married with two daughters. Her husband is Angolan and Portuguese, born in Luanda, Angola. Since their family is tied together by two very different cultures, her passion is raising their kids culturally rich in both cultures.
