Story: Meet Akiyah and Kiara, two sisters that have bright smiles and warm personalities. They like to be active outdoors and enjoy attending Pow Wows and want to learn about traditional dancing and food. These young ladies are very interested in their Navajo culture. Akiyah and Kiara are both helpful, inquisitive, and eager to learn new skills or projects such as arts and crafts. They attend public school and are doing well in regular education. The two sisters want to be adopted by a Navajo family, with a strong loving Mother, who can teach them about their Navajo culture and language. Akiyah and Kiara also have other siblings with whom they would like to remain in contact.
