About Choosehozho

Yá’át’ééh! My name is Teri and I am the owner of choosehozho.

I was born and raised on the Navajo Nation and now I reside in Farmington, NM. As a child, I grew up participating in Navajo Song and Dances and I learned how to read and write in my Navajo language. I also grew up in the Pow Wow circle in which I dance the contemporary Jingle Dress style. These aspects of my identify and culture have influenced and inspired me to create the designs that you see in my choosehozho shop. Much of my designs are expressions of my love for my Diné culture and language.

The phrase "Choose Hozho" derived from my own personal experiences in which I felt the need to reflect and reground myself with good thoughts and energy, otherwise known as hózhó. I have always liked the saying, "choose happy" and to me, it means that no matter what, we always have a choice to be happy.

Thank you so much for your love and support. I hope you enjoy the products I make it brings you joy. Ahehee'!
