Sad news Cassandra Yazzie Passes

Sad news Cassandra Yazzie Passes
NVISION Volunteer passes away in Car Accident.

We lost a true warrior woman who sought the best for her people. 2 days ago, Cassandra Yazzie, a strong Native Mother, Activist and NVISION volunteer, passed away in a car accident. Her three children were in the car with her and remain in the hospital. A donation account has been set for her at Wells Fargo Bank in Durango, Colorado. To make a donation call (970)247-3242 and donate to the Yazzie-Hotchkiss Memorial Fund Acct # 6453596485. Please take the time to help this family out, from the entire NVISION family our prayers are with them and theirs. She graced us with her presence and energy during PAWNEE NVISION and was a participant in the Graffiti Writing workshop, as well as being politically active in her own community. The family is needing funds to get the body released from the mortuary as well as helping out with funeral and hospital expenses assessed at this time.

Ryan Red Corn
co-executive director of NVISION
