HEART TO HEART
In the 1960s, a National Aeronautics and Space Administration team working on the Apollo moon mission took some astronauts to Arizona,
where the terrain of the Navajo Reservation looks very much like the lunar surface. With all the trucks and large vehicles were two figures that were
dressed in full lunar spacesuits.
NASA official Charles Phillip Whitedog tells that a Navajo sheep rancher and his son were watching the strange creatures walking about.
The father did not speak English and his son asked for him what the strange creatures were. It was explained to that they were astronauts training to
go to the moon. The man became excited and asked if he
could send a message to the moon with the crew.
NASA personnel grabbed a tape recorder and the old Navajo spoke into it. When asked to translate, his son refused. The NASA people played the
recording for other natives on the reservation, each of whom smiled or chuckled and likewise refused to translate. Finally, they
paid someone to translate the rancher's message:
"Watch out for these guys, they come to take your land."
