StoryCorps - Jerry Honawa and Joe Day

By Daniel Kraker

Flagstaff, AZ – Inside soundproof booths across the country, friends and loved ones are interviewing each other about their lives. The booths belong to StoryCorps, a project that collects the stories of everyday people in order to create an oral history of America. Here, Joe Day interviews his 69 year old Hopi friend Jerry Honawa (HON-awa), who grew up in Hotevilla on 3rd Mesa, but was sent away to high school in Utah.
