Are you curious about the work of a U.S. Diplomat? Looking for career options or to make a career change? Do you want to learn more about international in diplomacy? Interested in how you can serve Native American communities abroad?

Tomorrow, the U.S. Department of State is hosting a Facebook Live discussion where I will describe my work and experiences as a Native American U.S. diplomat. I'll describe how one can serve and represent both their tribal Nation and the United States. Other information I share can apply to anyone who is interested in learning more about the U.S. Foreign Service.

I hope you'll join me tomorrow! (Tashina Etter Cooper, Navajo)

My beloved father, David Earl Patterson, Sr. and Navajo Code Talker passed away this morning after losing a battle with pnuemonia and a fall that caused a sub-dural hematoma (brain bleed). He was brave until the very end, but was just not strong enough to battle any more.
We will all miss you and cherish you for all of eternity. You were my father, hero, mentor and bowling partner, I will love you forever and always................
