Richard Manson, 53 years old, was born in Bluff, UTAH. He is a Diné, and lived in Arizona in the Navajo Nation, the largest Indian Reservation in the US.
A Navajo artist, painter and sculptor, is an expert on the sacred traditions of his people, and very proud of the teachings that he has received, shared from generation to generation through his grandparents who strongly influenced his path in life from childhood, through to adulthood.
He has diverse work experiences from carpentry to mechanics. For Richard it is fundamental that he have the opportunity to express himself creatively through his art, events and ceremonies.
Upon his arrival in Europe in 2000, he moved first to Slovenia and then to Italy, always expanding his knowledge and sharing his teachings linked to his culture based on respect for "Mother Earth", as a source for learning and relationships and the development of full potential on a human level.
In Europe, in a few intense years, he learned mountain climbing thanks to his dedication to this activity. He has personally become more connected to the mountains, which has led him to explore the Himalayas and some other mountain peaks around the world.
Richard is also a journalist and contributes to some magazines such as the "Navajo Times". He also holds conferences for young people and adults, in which he speaks of his experiences which connect him to different parts of the world.
