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. As her role in hosting Native Talk Arizona she is ready to learn and share many resources available for the community and highlight as many native entrepreneurs and artists.
