Lanasha Puati works at NATIVE HEALTH in the Communications Department and is the host for Native Talk Arizona, Tuesdays at 7:06 p.m. 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.
