Description: In my days I've had about three names. My first name was ‘Ashkii naaki yáál. Naaki yáál was "25¢ a piece." ‘Ashkii is "kid." I would go out shooting rabbits with my dad, hunting rabbits. We'd eat the cottontails--he'd take them home... And these jackrabbits, I'd carry 'em around by the ears, sell 'em to the Indians. The only Indian word I could say was naaki yáál, and that's how much I wanted for a rabbit. So they named me ‘Ashkii naaki yáál.
