We are very excited to have the honor of announcing that the Navajo Nation’s very own, Michelle Thomas, will be performing the National Anthem in the Navajo language at the Pequot Museum’s Honoring the Veterans Powwow on Saturday, November 11th! Michelle brings great honor to her Family, her Tribe and her Culture by singing in the Navajo language. This language was used by the Navajo Code Talkers and is famous for playing a monumental role in helping to win World War 2. Michelle pays tremendous respect to the Navajo Code Talkers, as well as her late Brother who was a United States Marine Corps Veteran by singing in Navajo.
Michelle is an outstanding individual with tremendous talent! A singer, song writer, producer, motivational speaker and community volunteer! A proud and loving Mother, Michelle finds inspiration and influence through her children, and has won numerous awards including the 2020 (Empowering Indigenous Women-Role Models Who Inspire) Award! She also won her first Native American Music Award for best music video off her first single in 2019 titled, “Beautifully.”
