Wallace James, Jr.



WNPA

Wallace comes from the Navajo Nation in Northeast Arizona from a small town called Cornfields. He is of the Honey Comb Rock People Clan, born for the Mexican People Clan; his maternal grandfathers are the One Who Walks Around Clan and paternal grandfathers are Bitter Water Clan. He comes from a long line of Navajo Rug weavers and Navajo Tribal leaders that represent the great Navajo Nation. His hobbies include teaching the younger generation about the importance of Navajo rug weaving and silversmithing. Family is most important within the Navajo culture and traditions. As being a local elected leader as the Cornfields Chapter Vice President and Ganado Unified School District Board Clerk, it’s important to him to be a positive role model for our children.
