Nai Gorman

Naiyahnikai Natonedakoi Gorman is a native descendant of the Cheyenne/Diné (Navajo) Tribe with a lineage of medicine protectors and keepers. Growing up she inherently learned the Diné way of life; this being the culture, language, tradition, ceremony and protocol. As she continues to mentor as a traditional practitioner, she has a deep passion for continuing to aid healing in the people and communities, while continuing her aspiration in public health. Naiyahnikai is an advocate for Indigenous representation and rights as a public speaker, artist, model and singer. She supports her work with practices of diversity, equity and inclusion.
