1-17-22 Allen Cardoza Interviews Erica Elliott

Author, adventurer, speaker, Dr. Erica Elliott, M.D. has released an extraordinary memoir that recounts the early years of her extraordinary life living among the Navajo people. As a young woman in the early 1970s, she arrived at a Navajo boarding school to teach and then becomes a student herself of mystical, earth-centered wisdom that has been lost to most in today’s modern world.

In Dr. Elliott’s new book, Medicine and Miracles in the High Desert, she reaches across a wide cultural divide to learn the Navajo language, the people begin to trust her and invite her into their homes, their ceremonies, and into their hearts.

A few years later, Dr. Elliott returns to serve the Navajo people as a medical doctor in an under-served clinic, performing emergency procedures and delivering babies. When a medicine man offers to thank her with a ceremony, more miracles unfold. This true story of personal risk and high adventure paints a rare, contemporary picture of Navajo life that at once elicits inspiration, deep sadness, and respect for the Native American people.
