Irvin Morris (1958) is a Navajo Nation author from the Tobaahi clan.[1] He has taught at Cornell University, the State University of New York, the University of Arizona, and Dine College. He received his MFA at Cornell University, and a PhD in American Indian Studies from the State University of New York at Buffalo.[1] His work, From the Glittering World: A Navajo Story (1997) is a blend of Navajo creation narrative, history, fictionalized memoir, and Navajo stories.[2][3] The title is taken from the Navajo creation story about the last of five existing worlds, our own, which is called the glittering world.
