My name is Lisa Redsteer. I am Yucca Fruit-Strung-Out-In-A-Line Clan, born for the Water's Edge Clan. The Red House People Clan are my maternal grandfather's clan, and the Many Goats Clan are my paternal grandfather's clan. In this way, I identify myself as a Diné (Navajo) woman.

She is a proud member of the Navajo Nation with deep roots and a strong commitment to preserving her cultural teachings by incorporating Traditional Ecological Knowledge, Traditional Foods, and Tribal Energy into her classes and projects.

She is a passionate advocate for sustainable energy and education, dedicated to making a positive impact on both the environment and Indigenous communities.
