The Art of Giving

On Purpose | Season 1

The art of giving, the way the Diné (Navajo) people exchange with one another, is explained by visionary artist and System Buster Bahe "Buddy" Whitethorne Jr. When inspired, he gives away his beautiful paintings and won't accept money in return. When Bahe transitioned this week, the Navajo People, and all of us, lost a talented artist, compassionate heart and sparkling soul. To assist his family with the unexpected expenses, there is a crowdfunding campaign going on. Every bit helps: Interview location: northern Arizona, on Navajo Nation. Music by Elijah Ray
