Those 60 have grown to 10,000 and the hay wagon has been replaced with large circus tents. The East Tennessee Unit provides you a unique opportunity to attend this popular festival in your Airstream.   $115.00 rally fee includes 5 nights parking w/full hook-ups. Each person is responsible for purchasing his or her tickets to the Storytelling Festival.   Early parking begins Sunday, September 27 @ $23.00 a night.

CodeTalker

Peter McDonald spoke for over an hour on the Navajo Culture and the story of the Code Talkers to a standing-room only crowd in the VAC tent.

Peter MacDonald (born 1928) is a Native American politician and the only four term Chairman of the Navajo Tribe. MacDonald was born in Arizona,  and served the U.S. Marine Corps in World War II as a Navajo Code Talker. He was first elected Navajo Tribal Chairman in 1970.

Raised among traditional shepherds and groomed as a medicine man, MacDonald entered the Marine Corps as a Navajo language code talker during World War II. The war ended soon after his training was complete and he was deployed in post-war China to guard surrendered Japanese officers.

After the war, MacDonald earned an electrical engineering degree at the University of Oklahoma. Upon graduation, his acumen secured a job at the Hughes Aircraft Company, working on the Polaris nuclear missile project. He returned to the Navajo Nation in 1963 and began a career in tribal politics.
