Sarah Ann Parker’s first experience on the Navajo Reservation in 1976 came with the fury of a blackout sandstorm that followed her from Winslow to Rough Rock, Arizona. After thirty years of living on the Reservation, marrying a Navajo man, and raising four children with him, you could say she has eaten more sand than she cares to remember; however, the lifelong experiences have shaped her like the sandstone cliffs of Black Mesa, Arizona. Although not intrinsic to the land, she is a part of its stories as she has seen Navajo babies born and Navajo elders die, and has felt with them the pain of invisibility. Rainbow Trail is Sarah Ann Parker’s attempt to bridge the gap between the past and the future, between men and women, and between cultures. Her education includes a Bachelor of Arts in secondary English and a master’s degree in counselor education from Arizona State University. She has been an educator, a classical homeopath, and an attunement practitioner.
