Diné Bizaad Braille BiKáá
I developed a braille code for the Navajo language and it was approved by the Navajo Nation Board of Diné Education. Navajo braille has no contractions. Navajo words and passages are to be fully written in alphabetic, uncontracted braille. Punctuation, type face, and numbers will adhere to the UEB guidelines (see BANA, 2013). It was designed to be used to instruct adults and children who use braille to read and write in Navajo.
