Lynn Begay and Ozzie Winger - The Incredible Story of Coach, an Athlete, and Opportunity in Decorah (Episode #29, 12 Mar. 2021)

Incredibly grateful that Lynn Begay took time to join me for an interview about his inspiring life story.   In the late 1980s, Lynn and his family met a dynamic teacher named Ozzie Winger while Ozzie was coaching on a Navajo reservation in northwest New Mexico. Ozzie was an inspiring coach, cheerleader, learner and mentor to so many Navajo Youth.  As he reached retirement age, Ozzie invited Lynn and his siblings to spend some summers in his and my hometown of Decorah, IA.  Lynn accepted that invitation and so began the incredible story of growing up Navajo in Decorah, Iowa.  Lynn was a star athlete, friend, and inspired so many with his positive example.  Ozzie died in 2007.  We celebrate Ozzie's life and the impact that he made upon Lynn and his family.  Ozzie was a fierce defender of not only Lynn, but also Navajo culture and peoples.  

We discussed Navajo language, culture, code talkers, and what it was like to grow up as a proud member of the Navajo Nation in Decorah, Iowa.

We also discussed book and movie recommendations for people interested in Native culture. You can find the links at rocknecole.com.

If you're ever in Crete, Nebraska, check out Lynn's sport bar, Elle's on Main, one of the top sport's bars in Eastern Nebraska.  

Lynn is a good vibe person.   You will love this interview!
