Rock Gap Engineering Attends Navajo Nation Parade, Building a Network of Entrepreneurship

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.Sept. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — A member of the Navajo clan Tse deeshgizhnii (Rock Gap Clan), Keith Keetso is a small business owner, finding ways to bring financial awareness to the Navajo community. A 100% Native American owned engineering and construction firm, Rock Gap Engineering (RGE) focuses on providing engineering design services to various federal agencies and the Navajo Nation.

Head just west of RGE’s Albuquerque, NM location and marvel at the high desert mountains and ancient landmarks that symbolize the undecorated roots of RGE’s beginnings. The Navajo people, the Diné, indulge in a cultural past that is very much present today – inscribed in the language, etched in the monumental rocks, and permanently passed down to new generations. Celebrating reserved traditions, there are said to be more than 50 different kinds of ceremonies that may be used in the Navajo culture – all performed at various times for a specific reason.

On September 9th, 2017, both young and old gathered for the 71st annual Navajo Nation Parade and Fair in Window Rock, AZ. Thousands upon thousands of locals and hundreds of the most talented artists arrived to harvest in the Navajo way. RGE joined the procession, teaming up with the Native American Business Incubator Network (NABIN) to support Native American business owners.

The Navajo Nation truly is a nation within a nation. #IAMTHENAVAJOECONOMY was endorsed throughout the parade, giving hope to first-generation entrepreneurs who will one day become the new Keith Keetso’s of the Navajo community.
