Rose Johnson-Tsosie and her twin sister were born in 1950 to a 13 year-old Navajo girl who unknowingly gave up her parental rights. The girls were adopted by a loving family, and Rose later returned to the same Navajo community as a missionary, where she found her birth mother and was able to re-connect with traditional Navajo ways of life.
Rose has dedicated much time as a keynote speaker, seminar workshop leader; and inspirational speaker at various youth detention centers, schools, churches, and civic groups.
In 2002, Rose was diagnosed with Diabetes and Glaucoma. After six surgeries, and 98% peripheral vision loss, she is an advocate on health issues such as diabetic complications, blindness and neuropathy.
