Old Hosteen Yazzie - Age 110 yrs. Old Hosteen Yazzie was one of the last Navajo Indians to surrender to the Army Scout, Kit Carson, and the U. S. Soldiers. He has been a familiar figure throughout the Southwest. His "Lament" gives an idea how difficult it is for him to understand "White Man's Ways". He is past 110 years of age.
