This hero portrays the value of TEACHING BY EXAMPLE
Submitted by Valdora Whitewater 8 months ago.
My hero is my grandfather Manuel. He is one of the orignal Navajo code talkers. He is still alive. 90 years old. He fought in world war 2 and he has showed me that you can overcome anything. He also was one of the children who went to the horrible carlisle indian school andhe came out stronger than ever. Society says because your Native American , you should be a drunk and lazy, with my grandfather,he went to high school and college and graduated. He became a successful teacher and buisness man. He also teaches native american youth about their culture. I love him so much.
